Tulsa train derailment

TULSA, Okla. – A train derailment in Tulsa is causing some major problems Friday morning.

Officials said about 20 cars are overturned, most of those carrying vehicles.

The train stretches for about a mile and it’s shutting down several roads right now.

Crews are also trying to stop 3,000 gallons of fuel from spilling into a nearby creek.

The good news is no one was seriously injured.

It is expected to take hours, possibly into the evening, to get the mess cleaned up.
