Train derails in Ohio, spilling corn; no one hurt

DELAWARE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say part of a train
hauling corn derailed north of Ohio’s capital, sending nearly three
dozen cars off the tracks and spilling their contents.
Emergency
responders say no one was hurt when the middle of a southbound Norfolk
Southern train derailed Tuesday afternoon near the sheriff’s office in
Delaware County, roughly 25 miles north of downtown Columbus. The cause
of the derailment wasn’t immediately clear.
The county’s emergency management office says the derailment damaged Norfolk Southern and CSX rail lines.

A statement from Norfolk Southern Corp. said it wasn’t sure how soon the scene might be cleared.
The
train had a total of 87 loaded cars and three locomotives. Norfolk
Southern says it was headed from Clarksfield, Ohio, to Loudon, Tenn.
