The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

STRATHROY, Ont. — The Trans­porta­tion Safety Board says it is in­ves­ti­gat­ing a freight train de­rail­ment near Strathroy, Ont.

It says no dan­ger­ous goods were re­leased af­ter the in­ci­dent that took place early this morn­ing.

Joanne Van­der­hey­den, the mayor of Strathroy-Caradoc, wrote in a state­ment posted on Face­book that no one had been in­jured in the de­rail­ment.

The mu­nic­i­pal­ity closed a num­ber of rail­way cross­ings near the site of the de­rail­ment over the course of this morn­ing.

Via Rail says trains on two routes from Toronto to Sar­nia, Ont., will be can­celled un­til Fri­day due to the de­rail­ment.
