Railroad reopens after fiery crash in Mississippi Delta

MONEY (AP) — Canadian National Railway Co. has reopened a Mississippi railroad after two southbound trains collided Sunday, sparking a fire.

The Greenwood Commonwealth reports a tank car leaked more than 20,000 gallons of crude oil, much of which burned.

CN spokesman Patrick Waldron says three locomotives and eight cars derailed from one train, while a locomotive and three cars derailed from the second.

Crews worked through the night to remove derailed cars and repair tracks. No one was injured, but some residents were evacuated.
