Minor Train Derailment In Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on December 14, 2009

A train derailment in Ottawa snarled some traffic but caused no threat to any people.

A couple Illinois Railway cars carrying sand derailed yesterday afternoon off Superior Street west of downtown Ottawa.  The derailed cars weren’t hauling anything hazardous.  Traffic on the heavily-traveled Chestnut Street was backed up for a time.

The cause of the derailment is still under investigation.
