Cleanup Continues in Northwest Iowa Train Derailment
SIOUX COUNTY, Iowa — Investigators are in Alton, in northwest Iowa, looking into how a train pulling 95 cars derailed early Sunday.
Union Pacific Railroad says crews will be in town Monday working on cleaning up the derailment. A railroad official says a bridge collapsed as the train was coming across, and that’s what caused the cars to go off the tracks.
The train was carrying sand and soybean oil.
