Train Derailment in Greenwich Ohio
Video just released by Adam Good owner of a local business near the RR tracks called Adams Small Engine
Greenwich Police Department Chief told me yesterday that there is currently no threat to area homes and residents, there was a reported power outage following the incident, and crews are working to restore electricity at this time, but didn’t know how soon the power would be restored.
The Huron County Emergency Management put out a statement yesterday saying:
There was a train derailment in Greenwich earlier this morning involving approximately 20 cars. There were no injuries and there was not any hazardous materials released. CSX was the rail company involved and they are in the process of clean up. The Village of Greenwich is currently experiencing a power outage due to this incident. They are expecting clean up to take several hours and Kniffin Street will be closed for the duration.
UPDATE: Power was restored around 4pm yesterday.
They are hoping to have Kniffin Street open today.
