BENNETT, Colo. — Crews responded to a train derailment east of the Denver metro area early Wednesday morning.
Deputies with the Adams County Sheriff's Office responded to the derailment at about 5:10 a.m., near East Colfax Avenue and North Harback Road. That's west of Bennett, Colorado.
About eight cars carrying coal came off the track but did not tip over or spill anything, according to Union Pacific. It's what they call an "upright derailment."
The cause is under investigation. Union Pacific said no one was injured. They expect to have the railroad cleaned up and reopened on Thursday.
