Nobody hurt in train derailment near Augusta

TOWN OF LINCOLN, Wis. (WEAU) -- Nobody was hurt when a train derailed Sunday night.

Three cars from a Union Pacific train heading from went off the tracks at around 11:15 p.m. Sunday. It happened near U.S. Highway 12 and County Road AF, which is between Augusta and Fall Creek. A company spokesman says all the cars were empty, so there are no environmental dangers. He says there is minimal track damage, and snow has slowed crews down in getting the cars back on the tracks.

The company hopes to accomplish that on Monday.
