A train belonging to East Penn Railroad, a Pennsylvania freight operator, derailed near Montchanin Road in Greenville Wednesday afternoon.
The derailment caused road closures and traffic delays Wednesday. As of Thursday morning, Montchanin Road is closed between Kirk and Adams Dam Road, according to DelDOT.
The following intersections and roadways have been closed: Montchanin Rd. at Rockland Rd., W. Rockland Rd. at Adams Dam Rd. and Montchanin Rd. at Kirk Rd.
The line was once a Reading Railroad branch extending from Wilmington to Coatesville.
Emergency personnel responded to the scene where three tank cars containing fuel derailed around 2:18 p.m. Wednesday, Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control said, with one of the three overturned.
An Emergency Response team detected no leakage from the cars.
