The derailment occurred about 2:30 a.m. No injuries were reported and no hazardous material situation has been reported, although photos show at least one tank car with a placard for ethanol involved.

The accident has led to the closure of Jamestown Road between Devandrene Avenue and U.S. Route 1, the Ware County Sheriff’s Office reports.

  1. There was work done to that section of track over the past week and there was a 25 MPH slow order in place, CSX must have removed the restriction prematurely because this happened not long after that.
    Profit over safety is the CSX way.
