Clean up continues at Black Hawk derailment site, no cause determined


Clean up continues along the railroad tracks at Black Hawk where Canadian Pacific train cars derailed, collapsing a bridge and disrupting traffic flow.   

Spokesman, Andy Cummings says a crew of ten is working at the site, dismantling cars.  He says the focus is on safety and there is no timeline on the clean up process.

No cause has been determined.

Thirteen cars, which were filled with bentonite, jumped the track in the early afternoon hours of Dec. 19.  The wreck shut down traffic on Peaceful Pines Road until late that night.

No one was hurt in the mishap.  But a bridge did collapse during the wreck. Although Canadian Pacific reports that the bridge was not to blame.  It has since been replaced with culverts.
