Three empty cars leave track near Van Hook

A Canadian Pacific Railway train headed for New Town derailed near Van Hook resulting in three tanker cars tipping on their sides.
The accident occurred on April 29 and CP Rail public affairs spokesman Mike LoVecchio said Tuesday the investigation is continuing. LoVecchio wouldn’t speculate on what may have caused the derailment, but local residents suggested heavy traffic may have caused the track and ties underneath to sink too far into the mud.
