Southeast Alabama Derailment

Emergency crews are still on the scene for a train derailment just outside of Dothan.

The 16-car freight train derailed Thursday morning in the town of Pansey, Alabama. That’s about 10 miles east of Dothan.

Ten cars of the trained jumped the tracks. The 10 tankers and freight cars were all empty.

No hazardous materials were involved and there were no injuries.

CSX Railroad officials say they don’t know just yet what caused the mishap. They say it'll take two or three days to get the wreckage cleared and the tracks repaired and open again.
