Crews are on the scene of a train derailment in Le Sueur County. Just before five this morning a Union Pacific train left the tracks between Ottawa and the river. Emergency workers on the scene reported that the locomotive and four or five cars came off the tracks and landed in a creek. They also said it appeared that the rail bridge over that creek had failed. Because of the fuel from the train engine leeching into the creek, hazmat crews have been called in. Officials say the train crew suffered minor injuries. Thanks to MNN Affiliate KTOE.
