Train derailment caught on camera in PA


DICKSON CITY, Penn. (WBRE/WYOU) – A derailment was caught on camera Tuesday afternoon as a train left Scranton heading to Carbondale, making it only a few short miles before the accident happened. 

The clean up started late Tuesday. Several cars derailed and some rolled over, spilling their cargo, which included sand and lumber.

The railroad company is working with Dickson City officials to determine a cause of derailment, but initial indications lean towards a rail separation. 

A crane arrived on scene at about five o’clock Tuesday evening to lift three of the cars out of an embankment.

It could take all week to get the railroad back on the move.
