(Newburgh, NY) -- Two people are being treated for injuries after a major train derailment yesterday afternoon at the Newburgh- New Windsor line.
A preliminary investigation indicates the CSX freight train hit a forklift on the tracks, causing the 77-car train carrying hazardous materials to derail along the Hudson River. Three locomotives and 17 cars jumped the tracks, causing a diesel fuel leak.
The cleanup continues this morning.
