Crews responded to a CN derailment this morning in Williams Lake
Crews were on the scene early Monday Dec. 17 when two CN locomotives left the rail around 6:15 a.m. on the tracks running adjacent to South Lakeside Drive.
"As they entered the Williams Lake yard at a slow speed, the locomotives came off the rail, but remained upright," Emily Hamer, regional manager of public affairs for CN told the Tribune.
Other cars on the train, including empty box cars and various forest products, did not derail.
"There were no injuries, leaks or environmental damages," Hamer said, adding the incident is under investigation.
