There were no injuries when nearly a half-dozen train cars slid off railroad tracks in Dickinson County.

Dickinson County Emergency Management Director Chancy Smith tells KSAL News the incident happened when a train derailed on Union Pacific Railroad tracks near Herington late Sunday morning.

According to Smith, five grain cars carrying wheat left the tracks. One went off a bridge at K-4 Highway and missed the highway by about 40 feet.

Smith says about 100 yards of rail were damaged.

There were no injuries in the incident.
