SPENCER, Ohio (WJW) — A train derailed in Medina County late Tuesday night.
The crash happened just before midnight in the Village of Spencer.
According to Wheeling and Lake Erie Railway Company, it’s not clear yet what caused the five empty railcars to roll off their track.
No one was injured and no hazardous materials were involved, but the crash blocked State Route 301 for several hours.
This is just the latest train derailment to make headlines in recent weeks.
In early February, a derailment in East Palestine made national headlines when 38 cars ran off the track. Eleven were carrying hazardous chemicals, with some spilling into nearby waterways. The U.S., the state of Ohio and residents near the crash have all filed lawsuits against Norfolk Southern over the derailment.
Earlier this week, a CSX train derailed in Wayne County. The train lost a set of wheels and separated into two portions. Roads in the area were closed for several hours.
