“At this time, it’s premature to speculate on what may have caused this incident,” said Greenberg,” Over the next while, our railroad experts will be conducting a full investigation that will not only look at the cause of what took place, but also what led to that cause.”

A total of 14 cars were involved in the incident that happened at approximately 12:30 a.m. Saturday morning.  “It was northbound carrying agricultural products,” said Greenberg,” There were no hazardous materials involved.  Whenever there is an incident such as this, we take the matter very seriously and our response and procedures did kick in immediately.  We were at the scene with local officials to ensure that the site was safe, secure and that there was no risk to the public.”

According to Greenberg, work at the site is moving at a steady pace.  “The situation continues to proceed well according to our railroads protocol and procedures,” said Greenberg,”
There are two tracks in that area and the main track was re-opened Sunday morning following the completion of repairs and required inspection.  Some clean-up work is continuing over the next few days in addition to some work that is required on the second track.”
