Train derails into the Passumpsic River

Posted: Updated:
BARNET, Vt. -

Three freight cars will be pulled from the Passumpsic River Tuesday morning after derailing in East Barnet.

The cars went off the tracks near the Comerford Dam, and two cars are almost completely submerged. No one was hurt.

The cars were carrying feed grain for Washington County Railroad.

Vermont State Police say it appears the cars tumbled because of bank erosion.
