CSX Freight Cars Derail

Railroad crews are trying to clean up after a train derailment in Holmes County between Chipley and Bonifay near the Washington-Holmes County line.

It happened just north of Highway 90 about 9:00 p.m. Tuesday night.
Seven freight train cars from the CSX Railroad left the tracks, fell over and spilled all the gravel they were carrying.

No one was hurt, traffic wasn't affected and no hazardous materials were involved.

Salvage teams actually cut a makeshift road through the woods to reach the wreckage. They expect the have the train cars up righted and the track repaired by sometime Thursday.
