PARKERS PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - Canadian Pacific says the rail line where a derailment and crude oil spill occurred in western Minnesota has been re-opened.
The railroad says an inspection and track repairs are complete and a cleanup is progressing.
Thousands of gallons of oil leaked onto frozen ground after the train carrying crude from Canada derailed Wednesday in Otter Tail County. The 94-car train was headed south near Parkers Prairie when 14 cars derailed. The train went into an emergency braking mode. Three tanker cars either leaked or spilled oil. No one was hurt.
Minnesota Pollution Control Agency spokesman Dan Olson says an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 gallons leaked onto the ground. The spill was contained in a field and ditch in a rural area.
