Train Derails Near Downtown Raleigh

Posted January 21, 2007

A train carrying grain and soybeans derailed near downtown Raleigh early Sunday morning.

Four cars on a Norfolk Southern train derailed near Morgan Street and the Boylan Avenue bridge about 6 a.m.

No one was hurt, and since there is another railroad track along the line, the accident didn't back up railway traffic. Railroad officials said that a crane would be brought in Sunday night to remove the cars from the track.

The cause of the derailment is under investigation, officials said.
