( – On Monday, a CSX freight train’s cars derailed right before 5 a.m. in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, near Flourtown Road, Joshua Road, and Stenton Avenue.

Following the derailment people in areas around the scene were ordered to evacuate as a precaution. Officials argued that they did not believe that there would be any cause for more evacuations in the future, and stated that there were no injuries or hazards to the public caused by the derailment. The order was lifted shortly after.

In a statement released to FOX Business, CSX noted that 16 freight cars from the 40 total cars of the train were derailed. They added that according to the preliminary reports, only one of the cars that were involved in the derailment had been transporting hazardous material and that there had not been any leaks or spills following the derailment. They further pointed out that none of the train crew members were injured during the incident.

Following the local fire department’s arrival at the team, there was an evacuation order for around a dozen homes that were around the area, just as a precaution. CSX also revealed that the derailment was most likely a result of the weather.

Police revealed to FOX29 that the derailed train cars contained silicone pellets, which are not harmful to the public. Norfolk Southern also revealed in a statement to Fox Business that the train had been on Norfolk Southern tracks during the time of the derailment.

Pennsylvania Gov. Josh Shapiro posted about the train derailment on Twitter, pointing out that a team of responders was dealing with the aftermath, and encouraging residents to listen to the instructions given by local authorities.
