Street Still Closed for Derailment Cleanup

A street in Sandusky remained closed on Tuesday as workers cleaned up a Norfolk Southern derailment.

Columbus Avenue was blocked after tank cars from a Saturday afternoon derailment of Train 310 fell onto the roadway.

The tank cars were carrying paraffin wax and although some of it leaked officials said that did not create a health hazard.

No injuries were reported in the derailment whose cause remains under investigation.

A city official told the Sandusky Register that Columbus Avenue would remain closed until further notice. Officials were trying to determine if road repairs were needed.
