A train allegedly carrying hazardous materials, has derailed and crashed near Rockwood, Maine on Saturday, April 15th. The train had caught on fire but reportedly, none of the hazardous materials did. However, some did spill across the landscape.
Photographs show the train derailed in a forest covered in snow. The cause of the derailment of the train is still unknown but reports are speculating that it could have something to do with the buildup of ice along the train tracks.
According to News Center Maine, the Canadian Pacific Kansas City freight train had six lumber cars that derailed. There were also three locomotives that derailed as well.
Three railroad workers were taken to the hospital to have assessments on their injuries but there were no deaths in the train accident.
This event has come just a couple months after the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio that caused massive damage to the air, drinkable water, and nearby wildlife.
