Cold blamed for NW Iowa derailment

Posted: Updated:

ASHTON, Iowa (AP) - Officials are blaming the cold weather for a train derailment in northwest Iowa.
    
The Osceola County Sheriff's Office says more than a dozen cars came off the tracks Tuesday morning along Iowa Highway 60 south of Ashton. No injuries have been reported and no spills.
    
Officials blamed the cold weather for causing a piece of track to come up. National Weather Service records show subfreezing, near zero and subzero temperatures have chilled the area over the past three days.
