Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 04.6

A 70-car train derailed Sunday night in southeast North Dakota near the town of Wyndmere with 31 of the cars off the tracks and some leaking petroleum used in making asphalt.  Officials say that the leaking material will be allowed to solidify into gel as the temperatures are well below-freezing.  Reports say that the cleanup will take 7-10 days. The latest in a string of train derailments comes weeks after the East Palestine, Ohio, derailment which spilled hazardous materials and forced residents to evacuate.
