Train With Ammonium Nitrate Derails Near Capac 2-07-2011

Canadian National Railway says cleanup is complete after five train cars came off the tracks in St. Clair County, including one that contained ammonium nitrate.
Spokesman Frank Binder says the accident happened about 12:30 a.m. Monday near Capac, about 45 miles north-northeast of Detroit. No injuries or evacuations were reported.
Binder says four cars on the eastbound train were empty at the time of the accident that left two cars on their side.
He says the car carrying an ammonium nitrate solid remained upright but sprung a "minor leak" that was "quickly contained."
Binder says it wasn't immediately known where the train originated or was heading. He says the line reopened about 1 p.m.
No cause has been determined. Canadian National and federal authorities planned to investigate.
Last month, 35 people who were evacuated from homes in Durand as crews worked to clear up hydrochloric acid that leaked from a tank car after another Canadian National train derailed.
