Train Derails in Middle Tennessee

GOODLETTSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- As many as 40 railroad cars are scattered along a track after an overnight derailment in Goodlettsville. Some have overturned.

Several fire engines were dispatched to the scene, but were recalled after officials determined no hazardous cargo was leaking. There are no injuries reported.

Cranes have been brought in to begin setting the cars upright.

WTVF-TV reports some of the cars contain cooking oil and others are loaded with powdered goods.
