Union Pacific Railroad crews continue cleanup on a train which derailed 4 of its cars near Garber Road to the north of Lakewood and Pollard Flatts around 4 p.m. yesterday afternoon.

Union Pacific Media Liaison Calli Hite stated today two of the derailed cars were back on the track and now crews are working to put the other two cars back on the rail. Hite reiterated three of the four cars were empty and the other had scrap paper material, none of which spilled.

There were no reported injuries but there is no estimated time of when the railway will reopen.
