Train Derailment Spills Corn, Damages Grain Elevator


Crews are working to stabilize a grain elevator control room in Lowder after a train derailment early Thursday. 

 

Snow and ice may have contributed to the derailment of several empty freight cars that were being backed into place to be loaded with corn.  The cars started to knock over supports for the Farmers’ Elevator control room… and contributed to the spillage of 100,000 bushels of corn from a loading boom onto the ground.  Two workers suffered non-life-threatening injuries. 

 

Authorities are asking people to stay away from that grain elevator in Lowder while crews work to stabilize and clean up the site.
