Rail Mishap Causes Detour

A minor train derailment in Meridian caused a major inconvenience Thursday.

Traffic had to be shut down for some time on part of 18th Avenue, as a crane was brought in to get a railroad engine that had derailed back on the tracks.

It happened on the M & B, near the 18th Avenue bridge. There were no injuries.

Officials with the Mississippi Department of Transportation are investigating what caused it.
