"We know the impacted cars were carrying hydrochloric acid, potassium hydroxide and asphalt," Tysver said in an email to CNN.
The derailment happened at around 2 p.m. Sunday in Sibley and involved an estimated 47 cars, Tysver told CNN affiliate KMEG. The train crew was not injured, Tysver added.
Их там не в одном вагоне, случаем, перевозили?? Опять Петров-Боширов безобразничают?
А причина - обрушился мост.
The cause of the derailment is under investigation, Tysver said. Authorities said the fire was caused by diesel fuel, according to CNN affiliate KTIV, and that the derailment was a result of a bridge collapse.
