Train derails on Ind. 25

No reported injuries, road closed until at least 4 p.m.

LOGANSPORT — A train derailed this morning after it hit the trailer of a truck that was stopped on the tracks.

Cass County Sheriff Randy Pryor said his department was called just after 9 a..m. to the Norfolk-Southern Railroad tracks where the engines on a freight train derailed after hitting a semitrailer stopped on the tracks at 175 West and Ind.25. Pryor said the train dragged the trailer about 100 feet, and the four engine cars derailed about 2,000 feet from the intersection.

There were no injuries.

Pryor said the driver, 47-year-old David Jones of Indianapolis, told investigators he did not see the train coming.

Pryor said he believed the train was coming from Lafayette and had about 50 cars carrying carrying grain, fuel and ethanol.

A section of Ind. 25 was closed because police were concerned that the front part of the train, which is sitting on a section of the rail that had bowed out, could be a danger to the roadway.

Pryor said the two-mile stretch of Ind. 25 would be closed until at least 4 p.m. Police are redirecting traffic along 300 South and U.S. 24. The Logansport State Hospital is still accessible.

The Cass County Sheriff’s Department, Indiana State Police, state highway personnel, Rural Metro and Logansport and Clymers fire departments responded to the scene.
