UPDATE: Crews hope to have derailed train cars back on track by 10 p.m.

Friday, June 28th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Crews hope to have six derailed train cars in Wilmington back on the track by 10 p.m., according to CSX.

The cars carrying flammable cargo derailed early this morning in Wilmington’s Love Grove community, blocking people who live there from getting in and out of the neighborhood. Dispatchers say the train ran off the tracks in the 1200 block of King Street around 5 a.m.

Police evacuated the row of houses closest to where the train derailed as a precaution, because the cargo is highly flammable.

Harry Hopes, manager of hazardous materials at CSX says crews are waiting for counter-weight from Carthage, which is expected to arrive between noon and 1 p.m., and large cranes from Richmond, VA, which should arrive here at 2:30 p.m.

Hopes says the tanks are structurally sound, with no leaks and no danger to the public. He says about 600 feet of track was damaged.

A temporary gravel road is open across the tracks to give emergency vehicles access and a way for Love Grove residents to get in and out should be open shortly.

CSX has a crew of claim representatives on route to the scene to help figure out accommodations and lodging for residents who are not being allowed to return home.
