  • Print

HAYNES, Alta. - Crews are working to clean up after the derailment of a CN freight train carrying grain in central Alberta.

CN (TSX:CNR) spokesman Jim Feeny says 16 cars left the track just east of Haynes and some of them are on their side.

He says some grain did spill.

There were no injuries.

There is no indication when the line will be reopened.

A spokesman for Lacombe County says there's no word yet on what happened.

"I don't think there's been any indication at all of what would have caused the cars to derail," Lantry Vaughn said Friday.

Vaughn is urging residents to say away from the scene. There are some traffic disruptions because a township road is blocked.
