At 9h30h pm yesterday a freight train derailed and crashed on a river embankment in the suburbs of Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The dramatic accident happened while the train was crossing a railway bridge linking the small city of Terrebonne to Laval. A total of 8 cargo cars either totally or partially derailed, half of them falling and crashing on the steep embankments of the Riviere des Milles Iles. Wagons came in contact with the structure of the bridge and fell, piling up on the south side of the shores, closer to the Laval side of the incident. Nobody was injured and the train conductors escaped unhurt in what could have been a much more serious accident. No toxic products or chemicals were spilled in the water way following the derailment. In an interview, Laval police spokesperson Genevieve Major explain that although the accident theory is more likely, investigations are ongoing to determine the exact nature of the derailment. Emergency and maintenance crews worked all day to remove incarcerated pieces of metal debris from the bridge and free some of the wagons. Operations are expected to carry on in the following days to remove all train cars and wheel axles that lay on the river side. A command post is set up on the Laval side of the river and is blocking traffic and pedestrian along Blvd Des Milles-Iles.

A 21h30 hier soir un train de marchandise a déraillé et est tombé d'un pont sur la rive de la Rivière des Milles Iles entre Terrebonne et Laval. Au total, 8 wagons ont soit partiellement, soit entièrement déraillés. Les wagons sont entré en contact avec la structure métalique du pont avant de tombé d'en haut de ce dernier, du côté Laval de la rive. Personne n'a été blessé par chance et aucun produit toxique n'ont été deversé. La porte parole de la police de Laval, Geneviève Major explique que malgré la thèse de l'accident préférée, une investigation est en cours pour déterminer la cause exact du déraillement. Toute la journée les équipes d'urgence et de maintenance se sont affairés à extirper les wagons de leur fâcheuse position. Un poste de commande a été établi du côté de Laval et le Boul des Milles-Iles reste fermé à la circulation.
