We are deeply grateful that there were no serious injuries and, especially, that all of the first responders are safe and that the two rail workers who were injured are doing well. We deeply appreciate the high level of professionalism of the railroad, emergency responders, the Red Cross and the Salvation Army in responding to protect the community and support affected residents.
CHS Corporate is partnering with all of the responders as we move forward. The CHS Corporate investigation is underway and they will be fully cooperating with all parties to determine the cause of this incident. Safety is always CHS Inc priority, supported by our strong commitment to training.
CHS regrets that the community, in which we have operations and employees living, had to experience this event and, in partnership with others involved, CHS Corporate will be following up with local residents.
