Cleanup continues at Harrison County train derailment site
GORE, W.Va. -- Workers are continuing to clean up diesel fuel and coal that spilled during a train derailment in Harrison County.
Two locomotives and five freight cars derailed Saturday in Gore after a CSX train hit debris from a rock slide.
CSX spokesman Bob Sullivan tells The Exponent Telegram that 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel leaked.
No one was injured in the derailment. An employee of a contractor hired by CSX to clean up the site was injured Sunday when a crane struck him in the head.
Sullivan says CSX is working with the state Department of Environmental Protection on the cleanup.
He says the company is investigating the derailment.
