LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Crews are still working to clean up a train derailment in southern Indiana.

Authorities responded to the derailment in Scott County, Indiana on Monday morning, after it briefly caused traffic delays.

WDRB was told by Scott County Sheriff's Office dispatchers that it happened on Fairground Road, between Hwy. 31 and Vienna Road in Scottsburg.

Six cars filled with grains went off the tracks, according to officials.

The sheriff's department says the conductor was in the process of switching out rail cars, when the track collapsed causing the derailment.

No injuries have been reported, but dispatchers say the train spilled a load of soy beans.

Fairground Road was briefly blocked as crews responded to the derailment.

It's now known how long it will take for workers to clean up the spill.
