Crews continue to pull rail cars from river in Maryland

PERRYVILLE, Md. - Crews are still working to pull rail cars from a river in Maryland after a freight train derailed on a bridge. Officials reported no injuries or damage to the environment.

CSX said in a statement Sunday that it's still working to remove two of four rail cars that fell into the Susquehanna River near Perryville, Maryland.

The train derailed Friday night in northeastern Maryland along the I-95 corridor as heavy winds blew in from a nor'easter. Authorities say it remains unclear if wind played a factor.

CSX said there were no leaks or spills. Jay Apperson, a Maryland Department of the Environment spokesman, told The Baltimore Sun that investigators "determined no environmental impact."

Three of the four cars were empty. One had some fertilizer residue in it.
