CEMENT, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is investigating a train derailment in southwestern Oklahoma.
OHP Capt. Paul Timmons says at least three Stillwater Central Railroad cars were reported off the tracks northeast of Cement in Grady County, Monday afternoon, but no injuries are reported.
