Train derails in NW Ohio amid storm; no one hurt

BRYAN, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a freight train derailment during a storm in far northwest Ohio may have been weather-related. No one was hurt.

Don Bulla, deputy director of the Williams County Emergency Management Agency, said the train derailed Wednesday between the Ohio towns of Bryan and Edgerton, near the Indiana state line. Between 40 and 45 cars from Norfolk Southern were involved. Railroad company spokesman Dave Pidgeon said crews were dispatched to the scene.

Pidgeon said the train was not carrying hazardous materials. It left from Harrisburg, Pa., and was headed to St. Louis.
