Bridge Collapse Causes Train Crash In Fulton County, IL

Updated:

Crews in Fulton County, Ill., are trying to figure out how to get a crumpled train out of the Spoon River.

The accident happened about two hours south of the Quad Cities.

The train was carrying mostly corn syrup when a bridge collapse sent it crashing into the water.

No one was hurt.

Crews say the bridge is more than a hundred years old, but it recently passed a safety inspection.

Clean-up is set to start Wednesday, September 18, 2013.
