Train derails in Wyoming
WYOMING, Mich. — The engines of a freight train derailed in Wyoming Tuesday night.
The location was near 28th Street on the rail line that runs under 28th Street just east of US-131.
The train was northbound when the two lead engines came upon a washout due to the rain and the engines derailed. One locomotive operator saw the track was compromised but couldn’t stop the train in time.
Wyoming Police were sent to the scene at 9:31 p.m. Tuesday, and 28th Street was closed there until about 7:30 Wednesday morning as the bridge over the tracks was used by emergency crews.
Two rail employees were hurt but are expected to recover after being taken to the hospital.
Because the train remained stopped on the tracks, 32nd Street remained closed east of US-131.
