Train Derails In Milbank

Fenton Construction was called in to address a Trail Derailment in Milbank, South Dakota.

A pickup truck that got stuck in the snow caused a grain train derailment in the northeastern South Dakota town of Milbank.

City Administrator John Forman says the pickup hauling a trailer got stuck at a crossing in town early Monday, and the train hit it.

Twenty-three rail cars and two engines went off the track, spilling an unknown amount of grain. No one was hurt.
