CSX still investigating train derailment


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — CSX is looking into what caused a train to derail Thursday morning in Wilmington.

CSX says an empty well car, which typically carries shipping containers, derailed around 4:30 a.m.

Police directed traffic into and out of the port.

The well car was returned to the tracks just after 9 a.m.  CSX says no one got hurt and there was no damage.

CSX had recently resumed service to the port following Hurricane Florence. Their first inbound train ran on Tuesday night.
