LAWRENCE, can. (KCTV) — There were no serious injuries after derailing a train near Lawrence on Friday night – thanks in large part to infrared technology.
Lawrence’s drone team of drones assisted the sheriff of Douglas County and Union Pacific in the cleanup.
The team used infrared technology to determine that there were no hotspots or fires after the derailment.
They provided a live liaison with Union Pacific staff to help coordinate the response.
Approximately 20 coal wagons derailed north of Lawrence on Friday night.
