JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — CSX Transportation railroaders are working to clean-up two accidents from over the weekend in Virginia and South Carolina.

A CSX representative confirms for Trains News Wire that a CSX locomotive collided with a loaded coal train in the railroad's yard in Newport News, Va. CSX's Christopher Smith says the collision happened about 6:15 p.m. Sunday and caused a small fuel spill. He says crews are working to restore the tracks and re-open the yard.

Smith also confirmed that a train moving north through Clinton, S.C., Sunday afternoon derailed five cars, including one hauling polyethylene. Smith says the polyethylene car was breached in the derailment. Polyethelene is a common form of plastic.

No injuries were reported in either incident.
