Indianapolis Train Accident Injures Two

Comments Off

A train accident in Indianapolis on Sunday morning derailed 35 train cars and injured two workers. The conductor and engineer on the train were both injured. It is believed that their injuries were not serious. The train accident happened in a rail yard on the west side of the city.

Wayne Township Fire Department Captain Troy Wymer says the accident happened early Sunday morning when 112 cars were released accidentally from the CSX yard in Avon. They then headed east on the tracks and collided with the 100-car train, which was bound for Avon from Buffalo, N.Y.

The train accident resulted in a spill of diesel fuel and soybean oil that required cleanup. No one else was injured in the accident. The accident will be investigated to find the exact cause.
