A Wednesday train derailment in Strathroy has left a pile of eye-popping debris and shut down most or all the level rail crossings that dot the town west of London.

Municipal officials with Strathroy-Caradoc say railroad crossing in the town are closed due to the derailment. Drivers are asked to avoid them.

Radio station AM980 is reporting the freight train was carrying about 10 cars and left the tracks at the Metcalfe Street crossing in the middle of town some time around 5 a.m. Somehow, no one was injured.

“There were no hazardous materials on the train and no injuries were reported,” Strathroy-Caradoc Mayor Joanne Vanderheyden wrote on Facebook early Wednesday.
