A Union-Pacific Railroad train partially derailed in southern Idaho, but officials say no one was injured in the incident.
Minidoka County Sheriff Eric Snarr told The Times-News that 11 cars from the 63-car train left the tracks late Sunday morning, and the cause of the derailment has not yet been determined.
Snarr says cars were scattered on both sides of the tracks and one tipped over, spilling lye.
Union-Pacific Railroad spokesman Aaron Hunt says the train was en route from Salt Lake City to Oregon and that it was carrying mixed freight, including lumber, grain and potash.
Union-Pacific has 800 miles of track and 1,000 employees in Idaho. The company is expected to clean up the lye spill.
