Crews have uprighted and removed that propane tanker car that derailed in Bridgeville Wednesday.

"The car with the high pressure propane was lifted and placed back on dollies and put back on the track," says Joe Hopple with Sussex County Emergency Operations. "It was fully inspected and found to be safe. It was removed from the scene on the tracks to a safe location, where it can be off-loaded and the scene is clear of that hazzard."

Hopple says no leaks or releases were ever detected and nearby residents who were evacuated were allowed to return home.
