Decatur Train Derailment

A freight train has derailed in Decatur, causing six rail cars to topple down a steep embankment close to a roadway.
No injuries were reported in the derailment, which occurred Sunday night in a northern part of the city.
Firefighters say the six derailed Canadian National cars were carrying soybean oil and limestone.
The (Decatur) Herald & Review (http://bit.ly/WsoUmf ) reports the train derailed on a section of track that dead-ended before a road.  
Witnesses say it appears the train cars traveled too far and rammed through the end of the track, grinding to a halt just yards from Mound Road.
Officials say no hazardous materials were involved.
