Train engine derails in Canyon County

A Union Pacific train engine has derailed in southwestern Idaho.

Officials say there are no injuries from the derailment that occurred at about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday and left the engine leaning to one side.

Canyon County spokesman Joe Decker tells KTVB-TV that some roads in the area west of Caldwell are closed.

Decker says Union Pacific plans to use a crane to put the train back on the tracks but that likely won’t happen until Thursday.

Officials say it’s not clear what caused the engine to derail.
