Train derails, damages City Brewery building
A train derailed in La Crosse Wednesday morning damaging a building at the City Brewery.
BNSF Railroad says no one was injured when an empty rail car jumped the track and hit a storage building at about 3:30 a.m.
The building sustained minor damage to a wall a structural engineer was on site and says the rest of the building is safe.
BNSF Railroad says they are still investigating how the derailment happened, but says early indications are a track switch wasn't lined up properly.
