Crews were clearing the site of a CSX derailment in Ware County, Georgia on June 30, and according to the Class 1 company, the effort could take some time.

Nineteen cars left the track Thursday morning on Jamestown Road near the Jamestown Baptist Church. No injuries were reported and no hazardous materials were involved.

The train was traveling to Chicago from Waycross, which is one of CSX’s largest rail yards. Since 1986, CSX has suffered 128 derailments in Ware County alone. There were six in 2021.
