No Injuries in San Bernardino Train Derailment

VOICE Staff

A freight train derailed in the San Bernardino desert region on Wednesday, March 3, sending more than 40 rail cars crashing into the sand, authorities said.

Nobody was hurt and there was no fire when the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Railway train went off the tracks around midday near the remote Mohave community of Ludlow, according to the San Bernardino County Fire Department Twitter feed.

“Initial reports indicate 44 cars derailed, and one car carrying ethanol alcohol is leaking,” BNSF spokeswoman Lena Kent said in an email. The hazardous materials spill was quickly mitigated. She further confirmed the train was carrying mixed freight.

Investigators are working to determine the cause of the crash.

Photos and video tweeted by the fire department showed cars piled up along the tracks, some on their sides.
