Clean-up continues after eastern NC train derailment

Posted: Updated:

Two days after freight cars derailed in our state, the clean-up continues.

A small bridge in Bladen County gave way Saturday as a CSX train was crossing over.

About 10 cars overturned, including one containing ammonia.

The accident forced about 400 people to evacuate. They were allowed back home Monday morning, after crews determined the tanker was not leaking.

CSX plans to pump out the ammonia later this week.
