A train carrying airplane parts and other goods derailed in Montana Thursday, sending jet bodies careening into the Clark Fork River.
The accident occurred west of Missoula, Montana. Of the 19 cars that derailed, seven cars were carrying aircraft components, three cars carried soybeans, three cars with denatured alcohol, and seven empty cars, MTN News – Missoula reports.
The parts were for Boeing 737, 747, and 777 aircraft on their way for final assembly before they spilled into the river, Boeing said. No alcohol or soybeans leaked.
The river and the rail line are closed as teams clean up the site of the accident. The rail line is expected to reopen Saturday evening.
