Train derails, 15 cars off track; no injuries
RADCLIFF, Ky. (WDRB) -- A train in Hardin County derailed early Thursday morning, spilling its load of coal.
It happened around 2 a.m. just south of Red Hill Road in Radcliff. Fifteen cars and two locomotives on the Paducah & Louisville Railway train derailed. Heavy machinery was brought in to move the cars.
Bonnie Hackbarth of the Paducah & Louisville Railway tells WDRB News, "We have crews on site in charge of cleanup and expected to have it back open within two to three days."
No one was hurt. Investigators are trying to figure out why the derailment happened.
