Cargo train derails in West Virginia, but no injuries or spills from cars with hazardous materials

MAGNOLIA, W.Va. (AP) — CSX says a cargo train derailed in rural West Virginia, but no injuries were reported and no cars with hazardous materials spilled. CSX and Morgan County officials say the train derailed Monday. Morgan County 911 says no evacuation was needed because of the remote location. CSX says the cars contained dry cement, calcium chloride and sodium hydroxide. Hazardous materials teams checked the area and it was determined that CSX would handle the response. CSX says crews have begun removing 10 rail cars and they’re repairing the lines and restoring the area. Service resumed Tuesday on one affected line. Repairs to another are expected to be complete Wednesday. The cause is under investigation.
