PROVIDENCE, R.I. — It has been a busy week for Genesee & Wyoming’s Providence & Worcester Railroad. Early Wednesday morning, an 80-car P&W freight train traveling from Worcester to Providence derailed at least one loaded ethanol tank car in Providence. The incident sent the loaded car onto a downtown Providence street.

No leaks were reported in the early Wednesday morning derailment. The cause of the derailment is still under investigation.

Also this week, the P&W suffered another incident when a conductor was seriously injured after leaning out of a locomotive cab and being struck by an unidentified object. The incident sent the worker to a local hospital where he was still in the intensive care unit earlier this week.
