CP Says South Dakota Derailment Not Caused by Bridge Failure
BLACK HAWK, S.D. (AP) — Canadian Pacific Railway says there is no indication that a bridge failure caused a derailment west of Rapid City near Black Hawk.
Thirteen or 14 cars derailed Thursday afternoon, and local law enforcement officials say a bridge collapsed.
CP officials say they’re continuing to investigate the cause of the wreck, but that a preliminary review shows the integrity of the bridge is unrelated to the cause.
No one was hurt in the mishap.
