Train derails in NW Ohio; no injuries reported

July 3, 2014

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say more than a dozen cars on an eastbound train derailed at a road crossing in northwestern Ohio.

No injuries were reported from the Thursday morning derailment on Norfolk Southern tracks west of Toledo, a few miles north of the Ohio Turnpike.

Authorities say 15 or 16 cars went off the tracks, with a dozen of them tipping near the crossing. The cause of the derailment wasn't immediately clear.

The Springfield Township fire chief tells The Blade newspaper that the train was hauling sand.

He says the intersection tends to have traffic backups and it was fortunate no traffic was waiting at the crossing when the derailment occurred.
