CP train haul­ing potash de­rails near Blucher

Regina Leader-Post - - CITY+REGION -

SASKA­TOON It is not clear what caused an east­bound Cana­dian Pa­cific Rail­way train to de­rail near Blucher, about 30 km south­east of Saska­toon, but the rail­way has said no one was in­jured.

The train went off the rails around 7:55 a.m. Friday. Ini­tial re­ports in­di­cate that more than 30 Can­po­tex Ltd. cars loaded with potash left the track, CP spokesman Jeremy Berry said in an email.

Crews with heavy equip­ment were on the scene early Friday af­ter­noon, ex­am­in­ing the crum­pled grey rail­cars and large piles of pink-coloured potash spilled on the ground.

The Trans­porta­tion Safety Board of Canada (TSB) said Friday it is send­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tors to the scene.
