Train derailment reported near Gibbon

GIBBON, Neb. -- A Union Pacific train was reported as having derailed in central Nebraska Wednesday afternoon, with 26 cars going off the tracks.

Civilian footage by Josh Tappan of the derailment near Gibbon was captured and shared on social media.

A Union Pacific spokesperson says that the cars derailed about 3:45 p.m. Authorities said it was a mixed freight train, but as of Wednesday evening it was believed nothing had spilled.

No one was injured according to Union Pacific, but traffic was closed nearby as a result of the accident. Union Pacific said it is working with a contractor to clear the site as soon as possible, but as of late Wednesday there was no estimate of when that would be completed.

The cause is under investigation.
