Train derailment creates mess

A bit of a mess Thursday night involving a central Kentucky railroad after a train derailed.

The train went off the tracks near Rogers Gap Road, north of Georgetown, in Scott county.

A man who lives near the railroad says he usually sees the cars carrying steel coils but they appeared empty Thursday.

Gary Brooks tells us the crash didn't cause a lot of commotion. It sounded like a normal train. He went to check out the scene after hearing sirens.

He says he's lived near the tracks for 11 years. This is the first time he's seen a train derailment.
