Freight Train Car Loaded With Wheat Derails in Illinois

A freight train derailed in Franklin Park, Illinois, on Sunday, March 26, video shows.

Footage posted on Twitter by Rudy Repa shows two compartments of the train had come either fully or partially off the tracks.

The train derailed on the Milwaukee District West Line and belonged to Canadian Pacific Railway (CP), local media reported, citing an email conversation with CP staff.

One of the derailed cars was reported to have been carrying wheat and the other was empty. There were no injuries reported, and the derailment and clearance caused a 15-minute delay to local services. Credit: Rudy Repa via Storyful
