CSX Coal Train Derails in Ga.

UNION CITY, Ga. — More than a dozen cars from a CSX freight train derailed here. No one was injured, but two rail crossings were blocked.

“There won’t be any hazardous materials to clean up,” ajc.com quoted CSX spokesman Gary Sease as saying.

At the time of the derailment, the train was pulling 100 cars of coal from Kentucky to Florida.

“Our investigation always starts with three main factors: the track, the equipment, and how train was being operated,” Sease told ajc.com.

Closed intersections could remain off limits to traffic for a number of days.
