There has been a train derailment in the Lethbridge area after a CP Rail train came off the tracks just east of Coaldale on Friday morning. As Kyle Benning reports, this is far from the first derailment in southern Alberta this year.
There has been another train derailment in southern Alberta – this time near Coaldale.
Two train cars made their way off the tracks about eight kilometres east of the town Friday morning.
The derailment took place around 6 p.m. with Canadian Pacific (CP) saying a locomotive and hopper fell into the ditch.
No one was hurt in the incident, the company reported.
The train was carrying grain and was located only metres away from a grain terminal.
Residents near the derailment site aren’t concerned about spills, even if trains are carrying oil or other hazardous materials.
