CAREY, Ohio – Two CSX Transportation trains have collided north of Carey, Ohio, on Monday, injuring one person, WTVG-TV reports.

The incident occurred near the north end of double track, at County Road 3. The line is CSX's Columbus Subdivision, which runs from Columbus to Fostoria, Ohio, and was once the Chesapeake & Ohio route to Toledo.

According to railroad spokeswoman Sheriee S. Bowman, at about 5:15 a.m., an incident involving two CSX trains resulted the derailment of about 25 railcars and one locomotive. Most of the derailed cars contained sand for use in energy production. Preliminary reports indicate that an unknown quantity of diesel fuel spilled from the derailed locomotive. As a precaution, two crew members were transported to the hospital for evaluation.

CSX is investigating the incident and working closely with local first responders to assess the situation as it develops a recovery plan.
