Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Traffic was stalled in North Fargo due to a trail derailment.

Six cars on a BNSF train hauling coal derailed just before 11 last night. It happened near 45th street and 19th avenue north. None of the cars tipped and no one was injured. Crews were on site today clearing the area and repairing the tracks.

“In this case crews were able to rerail those cars that were derailed, so we rerailed them and moved them out and then we worked on the track and are continuing to work on the track. Once that track is repaired the main track will be reopened.”

The cause of the derailment is not yet known.
