A report came in around 8:45 Thursday morning after officials say runaway rail cars full of logs crashed into a work crew in the northern Vancouver Island town.
The train was operated by Western Forest Products. The company says it’s fully co-operating with authorities.
The cause of the derailment is still under investigation.
