Train derails in Sparta
Two Union Pacific train locomotives and 13 train cars loaded with coal derailed in Sparta on Thursday morning, but no injuries were reported.
The derailment occurred about 8 a.m. near North Miller Street, according to Sparta Fire Department firefighter Scott Buckner.
Buckner said the derailment did not cause a fire.
One locomotive leaked oil and diesel fuel and a Union Pacific haz-mat team responded, according to a statement from Union Pacific.
The cause of the derailment is under investigation, Union Pacific said.
