Derailment


A Burlington Northern Santa Fe engine and cars block the tracks after derailing just over Rice Creek near Plaza Park in Fridley, Minn. on Saturday, July 16, 2011. 7/16/2011. The Star Tribune reports 17 railcars and two locomotives derailed on an overpass over Rice Creek, which flows into the Mississippi River, at about 7:15 a.m. Saturday. Fridley Police Capt. Brian Weierke says overnight rains washed out a rail bridge over the Mississippi River. It also closed part of Interstate 35W, flooded roads and basements and downed trees.
