No injuries reported in freight train derailment in Ohio


TONTOGANY, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say no injuries were reported in a freight train derailment in northwest Ohio.

The Wood County Sheriff’s Office says the train derailed in the village of Tontogany around 5 p.m. Sunday. Authorities say at least three cars of the 232-car train derailed and there was some minor damage to a restaurant.

CSX officials say the train was hauling some hazardous materials, but not in the cars that derailed.

The train was on its way to the CSX yard in Walbridge when it derailed at a railroad crossing in the village about 25 miles southwest of Toledo.

The cause of the derailment wasn’t immediately known.
