Police investigate derailment

(The following article by Robin Brown was posted on the News Journal website on September 18.)

DOVER, Del. -- Authorities said today that criminal mischief or a simple mishap may be to blame in a weekend rail accident.

Two cars of a Norfolk Southern Corp. freight train derailed shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday, between Kesselring Avenue and Beechwood Drive in Dover.

Dover police spokesman Capt. Leser Boney said they hit several pieces of steel on the tracks, causing $26,000 damage.

Railroad officials said the steel commonly is used to brace train loads and may have fallen from a previous train.

But a witness told city police three boys, ages 10-12 were playing on the tracks earlier.

Police ask anyone who knows the kidsí identity to call (302) 736-7138 or 736-7111.
