REPORT: 70-Car Train Derails in North Dakota, Spills Toxic Chemicals, DEVELOPING

A 70-car freight train carrying toxic material reportedly derailed in North Dakota Sunday evening, according to Fox News.

From Fox News:

The Canadian Pacific train derailed around 11:15 p.m. about a mile southeast of Wyndmere in Richland County, Valley News Live reported. No injuries were reported.

Officials said 31 of the 70 cars derailed, with some leaking petroleum used in the making of asphalt, according to the report.

Crews will allow the cold weather to solidify the leaked materials, which are expected to turn into a gel, WZFG reported, citing officials.

Nearby roadways 158 and 159 Avenue Southeast will be closed between Highway 13 and 14, the Richland County Sheriff’s Office told the outlet.

The cleanup is expected to last between seven and 10 days, the reports said.
