No Injuries in NS Derailment in Detroit Area

No injuries occurred during a minor derailment of a Norfolk southern train in Detroit this past Wednesday.

The Michigan Department of Environment said there was no environmental concern stemming from the derailment because no cargo was leaking.

The Van Buren Township Department of Public Safety said 30 freight cars were involved in the derailment, including an overturned car carrying grain.

Other cars were empty, including several coil steel cars. One car that was carrying a hazardous substance of liquid chloride did not derail.

The derailment led to the temporary closure of several roads.
