Train Derailment Under Investigation


Decatur – An investigation is underway to determine what caused several train cars to derail in Decatur.


The area is now cleaned up off East Mound Road where six cars derailed Sunday. Some of the cars still show some signs of damage.


A spokesman for CN Railroad says, one car was empty, one contained soybean oil and another limestone. The cars toppled down an embankment onto each other.
