No injuries reported in southern VA train crash

EMPORIA, VA (WWBT) - The Greensville Sheriff's Department says a CSX train derailment has cleared.

The train derailed around 6:30 p.m. Monday near Route 301 in Emporia.

Officers, fire and CSX officials say no one was injured and the incident was never elevated to a hazmat situation.

This crash comes just a week after an Amtrak train carrying lawmakers crashed near Charlottesville, killing one person and injuring several others, and just a day after a deadly train crash in South Carolina.
