8 empty rail cars derail in Cincinnati, 3 land in creek


CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) — CSX Transportation says it’s trying to find out what caused eight empty rail cars
to derail in Ohio, sending three of them into a creek.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the derailment in Cincinnati occurred at about 8 p.m. Friday. CSX
spokeswoman Cindy Schild said in an email that three of the cars ended up in Mill Creek and another
three landed on the banks of the creek.
Schild said CSX expected to retrieve all the rail cars Sunday afternoon. She said "there were no
releases to the environment as the cars were empty."
"We continue to work with the OH EPA on the recovery and appreciate the swift response by the local
responders," Schild said. The cause of the derailment remains under investigation.
