“At approximately 2:54 p.m. today, a CSX train went into emergency attempting to avoid a collision with a semi-truck and trailer stuck on the crossing at the Hodgenville Road crossing in Glendale, KY. Preliminary reports indicate that 21 railcars derailed as a result of that emergency action. One of the derailed cars collided with an occupied vehicle near the crossing. It has been reported the occupants have non-life threatening injuries. There are no reported injuries to the crew of the train and no hazardous materials are involved. We appreciate the swift response of Hardin County first responders. CSX crews are on site working closely with local emergency responders to assess the situation and develop recovery efforts. The safety of our employees and the community are our top priority as we work to restore the area.” – CSX Media Team
