Train derails near Chicago; no injuries reported
NORTHBROOK – A Union Pacific spokesman says a freight train has derailed and a bridge over a stretch of road has collapsed in the northern Chicago suburbs.
Mark Davis says 27 cars of a 138-car freight train derailed about 1:45 p.m. Wednesday. He says the three-engine train was carrying coal from an eastern Wyoming mine to a utility in Wisconsin. Davis says the bridge was 86 feet long.
Glenview police responded to the scene near the borders of Glenview and Northbrook but did not immediately provide any information.
