KSP: Glendale, KY CSX Train derailment report

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (March 17, 2023) - Kentucky State Police Post 4 reports: At approximately 2:54 p.m. today, a CSX train went into emergency attempting to avoid a collision with a semi-truck and trailer stuck on the crossing at the Hodgenville Road crossing in Glendale, KY.
