Train derails in downtown Calera

CALERA, AL - In Shelby County, authorities are trying to determine what exactly caused a CSX locomotive to come off the tracks near downtown Calera on Sunday.

The engine had about 2,000 gallons of diesel fuel on board but firefighters say only about 100 gallons spilled before they were able to contain it.

One person involved had a minor injury and was taken to the hospital for treatment.
