HARDIN COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - A train derailed in Hardin County late Saturday night.

Twenty-two cars went off the tracks about a mile south of the Colesburg crossing, according to Bryce Shumate with Hardin County Emergency Management.

Most of the cars were auto haulers with vehicles inside, Shumate said.

Several of the derailed cars tumbled down a hill.

No hazardous materials were involved and no one was injured.

Kentucky State Police monitored traffic in the area on Sunday, but the incident did not cause any closures on Interstate 65.

On Monday, Shumate confirmed that a contractor had been hired and that it would take a few days for all the debris to be removed. An exact time or date of completion hasn't been given.
