Winnipeg Train Derailment Closes Part of McPhillips For an Undetermined Time

Friday, April 21, 2023 - Winnipeg Police and Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service have streets blocked off at this moment. Crews are responding to a train derailment that happened this morning.

During a media conference at 10:00 am, officials with Winnipeg police provided details of the incident and traffic impacts.

Police said twelve rail cars derailed at the underpass of Logan and McPhillips around 7:45 am today. There are no hazardous waste in the train cars, no leaks, and no danger to residents and businesses in the area.
