Second Train Derails in Wisconsin, Spills Crude Oil

For the second day in a row, a freight train has derailed in Wisconsin.

Canadian Pacific Railway says an eastbound train carrying crude oil derailed around 2 p.m. Sunday in Watertown in the southeastern part of the state.

The railroad says at least 10 cars derailed, and some are leaking.

No fires or injuries are reported. CP is sending teams to the site.

On Saturday, a freight train derailed near Alma in western Wisconsin, spilling thousands of gallons of ethanol.

BNSF Railway said crews continued Sunday to transfer ethanol from the derailed cars and get the cars back on the tracks.
