Emergency crews responded to the derailment at the entrance of the Love Grove Community in the early hours of June 28. Six of the train's cars jumped the track, four of which were carrying a flammable material known as xylenes.
None of that material leaked out of the containers, but residents along nearby King Street were evacuated for hours as a precaution, and approximately 300 feet of the rails were destroyed.
The report says that a railroad employee failed to release handbrakes, and the train derailed as it traveled over a defective joint bar on the track. A defective crosstie was also listed as a contributing factor.
The train was going around five miles per hour at the time of the incident, and damage to the train is estimated at $47,000, plus another $2,000 to the track.
