Bridge failure a possible cause in Houston County train derailment

From AP Bridge failure a possible cause in Houston County train derailment
Brownsville, Minn. (AP) — A train derailment in southeastern Minnesota near Reno could be related to the failure of a wooden railroad bridge.
Department of Public Safety spokesman Doug Neville says it’s not clear if the privately owned bridge collapsed under the train, or if derailed cars took it out.
The derailed train is owned by the Iowa, Chicago & Eastern Railroad, but it’s also unclear if that railroad also owns the bridge.
