Train cars derail in downtown Jackson

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Nine rail cars have derailed in downtown Jackson, but it doesn't appear the derailment will cause any traffic problems for people leaving the downtown area during rush hour.

The derailment occurred between Gallatin Street and the main track in the area where the Kansas City Southern tracks merge with the Canadian National Tracks. Gallatin Street goes under the tracks at the accident scene.

The 9 cars on their side have been disconnected from the main train. No word on how long it will take to clear the tracks.
