NTSB Report: Columbus Train Derailment Damage At $1.2M
Federal officials have estimated damage caused by a train derailment and explosion in central Ohio this month to be about $1.2 million.
The estimated cost was part of a brief preliminary report released Wednesday by the National Transportation Safety Board. The agency is looking into what caused the July 11 derailment on Norfolk Southern Corp. tracks north of downtown Columbus.
