Five cars derail in Wayne County


WAYNE COUNTY, Miss - A Mar-Jac owned train in Waynesboro derailed yesterday on Marshall Durbin Drive.

Mar-Jac officials say that five cars jumped the track due to a heavy weight load and an aging railroad track.

Complex Manager of Mar-Jac, Joe Colee says, "Certified engineers plan on picking up the cars and building a new complete track."

Officials from the Meridian Southern train company were there this morning to assess the situation.

"The good Lord blessed them because no one got hurt" says Colee.
