Drone Footage of Ontario, Canada Train Derailment
Georgina, Ontario, Canada is two and a half hours north of Buffalo. Thankfully, no injuries were reported when a train derailed in that part of Ontario early Sunday morning.
The rail cars were carrying materials that were not hazardous according to reports and although cleanup took quite some time, according to CTVNews, the 85-car freight train was traveling from Winnipeg to Toronto when the derailment occurred around 3:45 a.m.
15 cars were dumped from the tracks in the derailment and the video below captured some of the images with a drone.
The railcars were carrying copper concentrate, a non-hazardous material.
Copper concentrate is the result of a flotation process after the copper ore has been mined and milled. Copper concentrate is an intermediate product used as raw material in the production of copper metal.
