Train derails in Mitchell
Two eastbound locomotives hauling an empty 85-car freight train derailed at about 12:15 a.m. Wednesday just west of the Burr Street railroad bridge in Mitchell.
No one was hurt and no cargo was spilled in the derailment, said Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway spokeswoman Amy McBeth. Both locomotives stayed upright after running off the tracks, she said.
