CARROLL COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Six cars of a Norfolk & Southern train were derailed in Rockfield, Indiana this morning. No injuries have been reported.

A total of six cars were involved, three of which were empty. The others were open gondola cars.
One of these contained rolled steel and another was loaded with contaminated soil.
