BNSF Freight Train Derails Near Havre
Fourteen cars on a westbound BNSF Railway train jumped the tracks Friday morning.
Fourteen loaded grain cars that were part of a westbound BNSF Railway freight train derailed east of Havre, spilling some grain and blocking the tracks.

BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas says cars 26 through 40 of the 106 car train derailed at 5 a.m. Friday as the train pulled out of a siding about 15 miles east of Havre in Blaine County, blocking both the siding and the main line.

Some cars were on their sides and some remained upright. No one was injured. Melonas says the cause of the derailment is under investigation.

The train was en route from Breckenridge, Minn., to Tacoma, Wash. BNSF hoped to have the rail line repaired and reopened as early as midnight Friday.
