Rails Reopen at Site of Md. Train, Truck Crash

Posted:

ROSEDALE, Md. (AP)- CSX says rail lines where a freight train and trash truck collided have reopened.

CSX spokesman Bob Sullivan said in an e-mail Friday that rail service at the crash site in Rosedale was restored on one track at 6:30 p.m. Thursday and on a second track at 11:30 p.m.

The crash happened Tuesday at about 2 p.m., derailing train cars and setting off an explosion that rattled homes in the area. A plume of smoke sent into the air by the crash could be seen for miles. The truck driver was taken to the hospital as a result of the crash. Two CSX drivers weren't hurt.

NTSB board member Robert Sumwalt said Thursday that the explosion caused damage estimated at $505,000 to the train and $120,000 to the tracks.
