BREAKING: Another Train Derailment in MI, Reportedly With Hazardous Materials

There’s been another train derailment, this time in Van Buren Township, Michigan on Thursday morning, west of Belleville.


It’s not clear what caused the derailment but the police said that there were no injuries. Although there was a car carrying hazardous materials they don’t believe that there have been any leaks.

The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy also said there was no indication of threats to the public. Personnel were sent to the scene for further assessment.

Congresswoman Debbie Dingell released a statement that she had been in contact with the local government.

“We are also in touch with the relevant federal authorities, including the EPA,” she said. “At this time no one is aware of the release of any hazardous materials, the car carrying hazardous material has been put upright and is being removed from the area of the other derailed cars, and EPA is dispatching a team to ensure public safety.

This joins numerous environmental concerns following a train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio where there was a release of toxic chemicals with fish dying and animals and humans getting sick.


There were also derailments in Texas and South Carolina this week.

Authorities are allegedly going to the scene and hopefully, they are able to determine if there’s any continuing issue with the derailments we’ve been seeing.

We will keep you updated as this is a developing story.
