Train cars carrying sand derail in north Oklahoma; no one hurt

The Associated Press and KOTV - December 8, 2016 11:15 am

RAMONA, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say no one was injured after three train cars carrying sand derailed from the railroad tracks in northern Oklahoma.

The derailment happened late Wednesday in Ramona, about 25 miles north of Tulsa. Ramona police say Osage and Quapaw streets at the railroad crossings are shut down in the town because of the derailment.

Tulsa television station KOTV reports (http://bit.ly/2gZO2GZ ) that the railroad tracks belong to SEK Railroad. Washington County Emergency Management officials say the derailment damaged the track, but no one was hurt.
