BREAKING: Georgia Town Evacuated After Train Derailment

People in Byromville, Georgia, are being asked to evacuate the area after a train derailed Saturday morning. Fire Chief Brett Walls says between fifteen and thirty cars fell off of a bridge onto Highway 90.  The Haz-Mat team advised them to evacuate a one-mile in every direction of the accident.

A statement from CSX says it happened just after 7 a.m. and several railcars derailed near Main Street. Walls said the cars contain non-odorous propane and that’s the reason for the evacuation. The train has two locomotives, 72 loaded rail cars, and 69 empty cars. No injuries have been reported.
