News Release from Blackfalds RCMP

Blackfalds RCMP advise of train derailment – Update

Blackfalds, Alta. – On July 2, 2021, at 8:15 p.m., Blackfalds RCMP received a 911 call of a train derailment along Highway 2A in Lacombe County.

Initial reports suggested a number of oil cars were leaking oil and possibly on fire. A nearby residence was evacuated as a precaution, and multiple emergency crews responded.

Emergency crews were able to determine that 23 train cars had derailed, four of which were carrying Tar Oil (liquid asphalt). Upon further inspection, only one of the cars was found to have a leak while the remaining were intact. No fires had started.

No injuries were reported and those evacuated were able to return home.

CP Rail and Lacombe County Emergency Management remain on scene and Highway 2A is expected to be blocked to traffic for several more hours while crews investigate and cleanup.

CP Rail Police has taken over this investigation.
