State Department of Natural Resources officials are looking into a train derailment Friday afternoon in Shrewsbury in St. Louis County.
No one was injured when nine cars of Burlington Northern-Santa Fe train left the tracks. But DNR wants to take a look at about 500 pounds of a powdery substance that poured out of a number of cars onto the side of the tracks.
An apartment complex is located nearby, but no homes were evacuated. It is not clear what caused the derailment.
