RENO, Minn. near La Crescent, MN (WKBT) - Clean up continues of derailed train in SE Minn
Crews have replaced and reopened the track where a Canadian Pacific Railway train derailed earlier this week.
Fifteen cars in total fell off the tracks, six of them carrying vegetable oil ended up in the Mississippi River, south of Brownsville.
Canadian Pacific said the derailment caused two valves to break on one of the tankers that landed in the river, causing 850 gallons of soybean oil to leak. Since then, those have been fixed and the leak has been stopped, but the six tankers are still on their side in the river.
