COVINGTON COUNTY, Miss — Three cars along a Canadian National freight train derailed in southeast Covington County Tuesday morning.
Officials tell WJTV that the train was headed southbound near Lux Crossing South of Sanford Community. The end of the train went over a weak spot after flooding caused the tracks to wash away.
The train was travelling at approximately eight miles per hour when the incident occurred. When the three cars derailed, the train automatically shut off.
No injuries have been reported.
Canadian National Railroad is currently inspecting the rest of tracks before any more trains come through.
