Eight freight cars derail at Selkirk CSX rail yard

SELKIRK, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Emergency crews responded to a train derailment at the CSX Rail Yark in Selkirk, N.Y. Saturday evening.

A CSX representative told News10 that around 7 p.m. Saturday eight cars of a CSX freight train derailed.

There are no reports of leaks or injuries from the incident.

The CSX representative said the train cars were carrying intermodal freight from Chicago to North Bergen, N.J.

Emergency crews are still assessing the scene, and CSX says the investigation to identify the cause of the derailment will begin once the scene is safe.

Contractors are on standby to help clean up the site, and clear the derailed cars once crews have finished assessing the scene.
