Train Derails In Wausau, Hits Terminal

A cleaning employee escaped injury in Wausau when three train cars derailed and slammed into a building in which she was working.

Fire officials said the train was heading north through Wausau when the cars derailed and hit a train yard office building owned by Canadian National Thursday evening. The derailed cars also flattened railroad crossing signs in its path.

Fire Lt. Douglas Flory said the cleaning employee was working away from the impact area and was not injured, but felt the building shake.
