Train Derails Near Indiana-Ohio Line

Posted On June 02, 2014

(North Bend, Oh.) – Several train cars derailed near the Miami Fort Power Plant  in western Hamilton County Saturday morning.

The CSX train was hauling car assembly parts when it hopped the tracks in the 10700 block of Brower Road at around 11:00 a.m. There were no injuries or chemical spills associated with the derailing.

The train had passed through Lawrenceburg and Aurora just minutes earlier.

Brower Road remained closed Sunday as crews worked to clear the scene. Work there is expected to continue through the week, Miami Township Fire Chief Steve Ober told The Cincinnati Enquirer.

A cause of the derailment is under investigation by CSX.
