Train Derails, Blocks Traffic On US-141 In Crivitz Wisconsin

Marinette County Sheriff Jerry Sauve reports that at 8:13 a.m. on Monday, the Sheriff’s Office responded to US Highway 141, just south of County Road “W”, in the Village of Crivitz, for a train car derailment which was blocking traffic on US-141.

Detour routes were established and the detour ended one hour later, as the railway was able to move their cars off of the highway and normal traffic flow was restored. No injuries or cargo spill occurred in this incident.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by local fire departments, Crivitz Police, Public Works, and the Marinette County Highway Commission.
