A Norfolk Southern train derailed in North Carolina on Saturday weeks after a crash in Ohio.
According to a Norfolk spokesperson one car on the 132-car freight train derailed in Lexington, North Carolina.
“While this was technically a single-car derailment, it was only one set of the car’s trucks,” A Norfolk spokesperson said. “The car itself is upright and not completely off the tracks. We are making repairs and setting the wheels back on the track and sending the train on its way.”
“There are no reports of a hazmat situation or danger to the public” the spokesperson added.
The derailment led to delays for Amtrak passengers.
This comes after a Norfolk Southern train derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, on Feb. 3 leading to chemical fire and the release of toxic fumes in the environment.
