Train Derailment

An early morning train derailment in Cottondale kept clean up crews busy Thursday.

About 2:30 a.m. Thursday, three train cars carrying gravel derailed at the railroad crossing on Highway 231 just North of Highway 90.

No one was injured, but traffic on the highway was reduced to one lane each way until workers could get it all cleaned up.

The cause of the derailment is still under investigation.
