Crews Clean Up Train Wreckage

Crews spent the day removing the charred wreckage after a train crash Monday in Estill County.

A massive fire started after four runaway freight cars slammed into a engine just north of Irvine.

CSX's hazardous materials manager tells us they still haven't figured out what caused the cars to roll down the track all the way from Winchester.

We're told it was either a brake problem or a problem with the crew.
