Health officials in northwest Indiana may have pinpointed the source of what made emergency responders sick last Friday at the site of a train collision.

The Red Cross served food to workers at the site where three trains crashed. Twenty responders reported getting ill.

Health officials say a Jimmy John's sandwich shop in Valparaiso is most likely the source.

Other people who had eaten there also reported similar symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea.

Tests of samples also determined the source.

No one had to be hospitalized.
