Train derails in Nevada, spilling vegetable oil, closing major highway

Nevada train crash

Nevada train crash

Cars carrying the munitions to a Nevada Army depot were not among the 23 that derailed near the rural community of Wells not far from the Utah-Nevada state line, officials said.

Lanes along Interstate 80 near Wells, Nevada, reopened Wednesday afternoon following a multi-car train derailment.

No injuries were immediately reported when the train, which was transporting munitions to Hawthorne Army Depot, derailed near Wells, according to the Reno Gazette Journal, which cited the US Army Joint Munitions Command.

Celtic 'unable to come to agreement' on Motherwell star
The concern for Turnbull is that he fears, with the offer on the table, that he isn't being viewed as a regular first-team player. Celtic appear to have embroiled themselves in the summer transfer saga they were reportedly so desperate not to do.

Nevada Highway Patrol was notified of the crash at about 10 a.m.

NHP said the Union Pacific tracks run parallel to the north of I-80.

Elko County's Sheriff Office has advised people to avoid the area due to a hazardous material spill. Vegetable oil is the only item to have spilled. Powder released after a Union Pacific freight train derailment has been determined to be non-hazardous aluminum oxide, a skin irritant that should be washed off if anyone comes into contact with it. "Union Pacific is investigating the cause and working on cleanup". It provides storage for old munitions and explosives, including some that could be reactivated, and serves as a training facility for special forces units.
