NS Derailment at NE on 4-19(20)-04

Has anyone seen a document giving the cause of the
derailment just East of NE on the NS Fostoria District
that occurred late on April 19th, local time, 2004?

Thanks

I use a Vertex 150 handheld 2 meter from Yaesu.
It is much more sensitive than my Radioshack or
Bearcat scanners.Also, I am not breaking Indiana
Law?
