Officials say a buckled stretch of track is believed to have caused a fiery freight train derailment in southwestern Indiana that belched black smoke into the sky and forced the evacuation of nearby homes.
The Evansville Courier & Press reports that the update on the investigation comes in a report to the Federal Railroad Administration from rail operator CSX.
The cracks were on June 17th, near a caravan park in Princeton, 150 miles (240 kilometers) southwest of Indianapolis. No one was injured in the clash, but 23 trolleys came off the runway.
Five of the ferrous cars contained propane, but the authorities said most of the smoke came from the burning of cars filled with French fries.
The damage was estimated at $ 1.8 million. The Federal Railroad Administration said the investigation is continuing.
