Illinois Railway and Wedron Sand handling cleanup

Posted by wlpo on March 16, 2014

A derailment in the village of Wedron is now in the hands of Wedron Sand and Illinois Railway officials.

Corporal Woolfred of LaSalle Sheriff’s office told “Classic Hits 103-9 WLPO” news that emergency personnel who responded around 10am today returned to base a short while later. Woolfred said between 18 and 25 cars carrying sand derailed before 10am this morning on the Wedron Sand property.

The cars blocked County Highway 21 in Wedron for a brief time, before the road was reopened. Woolfred said he was told some cars were on their side, tilted or even resting against a Wedron Sand building.

Wedron is northeast of Ottawa.
