Minor train derailment blocks roads in town of Henderson

HENDERSON, Illinois - A partial train derailment in Henerson, Illinois caused intersections in town to close for a few hours.

A BSNF spokesperson says a set of wheels on a car hauling pipe fell off the tracks around 9:30 a.m.

It was stalled on the tracks for a few hours and crews had to detach part of the train so roads could reopen.

One resident says it was a scary sight to see this morning.

"It was kind of disbelief then I'm like I gotta get out of here so it just happened so quickly that you just react so I threw my car in reverse," said Debra Mcgahey.

BNSF reports no injuries and says this was a minor derailment and they will continue to investigate what happened.
