CSX Derailment Disrupts Traffic on Detroit Expressway

The derailment of a CSX train in Dearborn, Michigan, on Wednesday morning triggered traffic jams on Interstate 94.

News reports said the derailment damaged the bridge and led to closed freeway exits.

The highway had to be closed to enable workers to move equipment to the scene to remove derailed freight cars, including one that dangled over the exits to Wyoming and Michigan avenues.

Michigan State Police reported the derailment occurred around 5:30 a.m. There were no injuries reported.

No hazardous material was involved in the derailment. Officials said the scene would require five hours to clear.
