Ethanol spills from derailed train
MOUNT VERNON (AP) — Authorities in southern Illinois are trying to determine what caused a train derailment that spilled a few thousand gallons of ethanol.
No injuries resulted from the accident involving eight Norfolk Southern cars on Sunday in a mixed industrial and residential area near Mount Vernon.
Assistant Mount Vernon Fire Chief Kevin Sargent estimates that about 3,400 to 5,000 gallons of ethanol spilled from a 30,000-gallon tanker car before crews stopped the leak.
