NDOT: Grain car train derailment blocks roadway in Brule

The Nebraska Department of Transportation says Nebraska Link 51A has been closed in Brule due to a train derailment.

NDOT reported the grain car derailment shortly after 3 p.m. Mountain time, and indicated the roadway linking U.S. Highway 30 and Interstate 80 was blocked and only emergency vehicles were being allowed into the area.

Union Pacific spokesperson Raquel Espinoza tells KNEB News the derailment involved three locomotives and a loaded grain car, however there were no releases or injuries reported.

An estimate on completion of repairs, removal of the locomotive and grain car and reopening of the roadway has not been made available.
