Miami-Dade train incident resulted with four people injured, two cargo trains collided

MIAMI, Florida – When two cargo trains crashed Saturday night near Miami International Airport, four individuals were hurt, including two train crew members.

Just before 7 p.m., Miami-Dade Fire Rescue deployed more than 25 units, including one to handle hazardous materials, to the vicinity of Northwest 15th Street and South Perimeter Road.

According to Tri-Rail spokesperson Victor Garcia, a diesel fuel spill occurred when two CSX freight trains collided. A CSX official stated that the derailed locomotives leaked fuel and that the business was “working closely” with first responders.

According to Officer Luis Sierra, a spokesman for the Miami-Dade Police Department, four people sustained minor injuries that required treatment. The eastbound lanes of Perimeter Road between Northwest 57 and 15 avenues were closed by police officers.

West of the Dolphin Expressway, police personnel urged motorists to avoid the area, as cleanup and investigations were expected to continue well into Sunday morning.
