Ottawa Bound Freight Train Derails

Posted by wlpo on January 25, 2012

A train bound for Ottawa never made it.

An Illinois Railway freight train derailed late Monday on the west end of Yorkville along the Fox River.  The train was hauling silica sand from Aurora and was headed to Ottawa.

About a dozen cars flipped over and a handful of others came off the tracks.  The cause of the derailment is under investigation.
