The incident occurred near the city of Springfield, according to Reuters. Norfolk Southern said in a statement that about 20 of the 212 cars derailed as the train was traveling south. The causes of the accident are not specified.

“There were no hazardous materials in the composition and no injuries were reported,” the company said in a statement. “Our crews are en route to the scene to begin a cleanup operation.”

Clark County officials on Saturday asked people living within 1,000 feet of the crash site to “shelter in place as a precaution.” This is stated in a statement on the district’s Facebook page (the social network is banned in the Russian Federation, it belongs to the Meta corporation, which is recognized as an extremist in Russia). It should be noted that as a result of the accident due to the rupture of power lines in the area there were power outages.

Remember, this is the second state of emergency associated with a Norfolk Southern-owned train. In early February, the train derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, about two hundred miles northeast of Springfield. The accident released tens of thousands of tons of toxic chemicals into the environment, forcing thousands of local residents to evacuate.
