6 cars of a oil crude train derail west of LaSalle
LASALLE — Crews from Union Pacific Railroad are working to clear a six-car train derailment west of LaSalle that has leaked some crude oil into a ditch.
One car is leaking, but crews have contained it to a ditch away from any waterways on Friday. A vacuum truck has been brought in to suck up the oil.
The amount of oil spilled has not been determined.
According to the Greeley Tribune, the 100-car train was loaded in Windsor with Niobrara crude and bound for New York.
Union Pacific spokesman Mark Davis says no cause of the accident has been determined.
