GALESBURG, Ill. ( KWQC) – Officials from BNSF Railroad say an overnight train derailment shouldn’t cause any traffic issues.

Railroad spokesperson Andy Williams says 14 empty cars derailed in their rail yard while they were being moved around 1:38 a.m., on Monday, November 30, 2015.

No one was hurt and Williams says there was no blocked off traffic because it was contained in the railyard.

Cleanup is expected to be completed quickly.
