BONNERS FERRY, Idaho — A BNSF Railway train loaded with grain has derailed in a remote canyon in North Idaho, about 18 miles east of Bonners Ferry.
BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas says 25 cars derailed Sunday afternoon as the train with four locomotives and 97 loads of grain headed from Montana to Kalama, Wash., at about 18 mph. Melonas says 18 cars are reported on their sides and seven are upright.
He says crews will work through the night to move cars, remove spilled grain and replace damaged track.
BNSF has not yet determined what caused the accident.
No injuries were reported.
Melonas says BNSF and Amtrak trains use the route. He says some traffic will be redirected.
