SEVILLE - A Seville train crash leaves hundreds of dead fish in the Spoon river. The EPA says at least 500 fish are dead after a train carrying corn syrup crashed into the river. A bridge collapse on September 16th caused the accident. The EPA says a large quantity of corn syrup spilled into the river and lowered the amount of oxygen in the water. Officials found most of the fish along a Bernadote dam, nearly ten miles away from the crash site. EPA officials says the worst of the problem should be over and crews are pumping air into the river to help solve the issue.
