The Miami County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that around 2:15 a.m., Wednesday, approximately 22 rail cars derailed east of Osawatomie.

A statement released this morning by the Sheriff's Office says the Union Pacific train was carrying grain when it partially derailed just to the south of the intersection of 347th Street and Lookout Road. Two or three of the 22 derailed rail cars are said to have fallen into the Marais Des Cygnes river.

Officials say that due to the location of the derailment, it is not causing any traffic issues, and no roads have been closed.

A spokesperson for Miami County EMS confirms to Operation 100 News that there were no reports of injuries.
