Officials: No injuries after Iowa train derailment

Officials say no one was injured following a freight train derailment in the northeast Iowa city of Shell Rock.


Iowa Northern Railroad Company says the early Friday incident near a railroad crossing involved some train cars going off their tracks. The Butler County Sheriff’s Office says it received a report around 2 a.m. about train crossing signals that were continuously on.


The company officials responded to the scene. They did not request cleanup or repair assistance from local authorities. Additional information was not available.


Messages left for the company were not immediately returned Friday night.
