‘ Freight Train Carrying Hazardous Material Derails in Arizona – US News Youtube HD Video Online

TOPOCK, Ariz. (AP) — A freight train carrying hazardous materials derailed in western Arizona, near the state’s border with California and Nevada, an official said.

The train derailed Wednesday evening near the town of Topock, Anita Mortensen, a spokeswoman for the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office said, adding that she was not aware of any spills or leaks. No injuries have been reported.

The Arizona derailment occurred near milepost 9 of Interstate 40, Mortensen said, which is a rural, non-residential area about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of Lake Havasu City. Mortensen said she had no details about how many cars were on the train, or what materials it had been carrying when it derailed.

The sheriff’s office had notified the National Transportation Safety Board and the railroad company BNSF, the two entities that she said would be responding to the accident, she said.
