Train Derailment Hauling Corn

SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - The derailment of train cars hauling corn left a big mess in one Michigan community.

The Saginaw News reports the two train cars from the Lake State Railway tipped over Wednesday near the border between Saginaw and Saginaw Township, about 85 miles northwest of Detroit.

No injuries were reported.

Kim Browning lives near the train tracks and captured video footage of the cars tipping over and corn spilling along the side of the tracks. 

She says "you could see the wheels tilting" and then she knew the cars would leave the tracks. 

Police, fire and railway officials all responded. The stopped train blocked traffic on area roadways.
