Street reopens after train derailment in Wood County


TONTOGANY, Ohio -- Main Street has reopened following a five-hour closure because of a train derailment Monday night, authorities said today.

Traffic on the street returned to normal about 2:30 a.m. today following cleanup needed when a northbound CSX cargo train derailed about 9:40 p.m. in Tontogany, Ohio in Wood County. There were no injuries, according to the Wood County Sheriff's Office.

Eighteen of the train's 60 cars derailed and damaged two buildings, sheriff deputies said in a release. The damage to the buildings was "minor," according to the sheriff's office. 

The cars were carrying scrap metal, with no hazardous material, according to a written statement released by the sheriff's office.

Tontogany is about 20 miles southwest of Toledo.
