Max Armstrong talks about a train derailment, crop conditions and country driving safety.

There are more than 170,000 miles of railroad tracks in the U.S. A derailment happened last night on the CSX system in Princeton, Ind., and two propane cars caught fire.

Crop conditions continue to deteriorate in some parts of the country. The heat is hurting the corn crop in Illinois and Missouri. We need to watch rain and night time temperatures.

Remember to take caution at rural county intersections, particularly when the corn gets tall and you can't see around the corner.
