No injuries have been reported but parts of the city of Raymond, population 782, have been evacuated and people are being advised against traveling around the area.

“An evacuation area of ½ mile was established around the crash site and law enforcement officers and other EMS assisted with that evacuation,” the Sheriff’s Office statement said. “Residents were instructed to leave their homes and an emergency collection site for those with nowhere to go was established at the Central Minnesota Christian School building in nearby Prinsburg, Minnesota.”

U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg confirmed on Twitter Thursday, that they are “tracking closely as more details emerge” and his office will be involved as the investigation unfolds.

The train track is currently blocked and it is not known when this will reopen. The Minnesota Department of Transportation said that Highway 23 is also temporarily closed at Raymond from Kandiyohi CR 1 to Chippewa CR 1.
