Train derails east of Huron

Posted: Updated:

HURON, S.D. (AP) - Workers from the Canadian Pacific Railway are cleaning up a train derailment east of Huron. 

Railroad spokesman Andy Cummings says the train left the rails at about 2:30 p.m. Monday. It was on its way to the Chicago area. Cummings says that it was too early to tell why the train derailed.

Five cars went off the tracks about five miles east of town. They were carrying wheat and sunflower seeds. 

Other cars were carrying ethanol, but those cars stayed on the tracks.
