Train derails near Toledo; no injuries reported

TOLEDO, Ohio – More than a dozen cars on an eastbound train derailed at a road crossing near Toledo, authorities said.

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 said 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 told The Blade newspaper that the train was hauling sand.

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