Amtrak service to and from Norfolk is canceled again Wednesday after a Norfolk Southern coal train derailed near the Portlock area of Chesapeake just before 4:20 a.m. Tuesday morning, according to a Norfolk Southern spokeswoman.
There are no reported injuries, and the cause of the derailment is under investigation, wrote spokeswoman Stacey Hugo Mansfield in an email.
The train was carrying coal and traveling east en route to Norfolk when it derailed near South Norfolk. Norfolk Southern workers are on site working to re-rail the cars and clean up the spill, Mansfield said.
The accident caused Amtrak to temporarily suspend service in and out of Norfolk. Service will be restored pending the cleanup, according to Amtrak.
