IJAMSVILLE, Md. (AP) - Freight train operator CSX Corp. says it’s investigating an eight-car derailment in Maryland about 35 miles west of Baltimore.

Spokesman Rob Doolittle says no hazardous materials were spilled and no one was hurt when the cars derailed around 8 a.m. Thursday near the unincorporated community of Ijamsville (EYE’-ams-vil).

Doolittle tells The Frederick News-Post (https://bit.ly/2mj4g0B ) that the 180-car train was traveling from Cumberland to Baltimore.

Doolittle says he doesn’t know how long the cleanup will take.
