Train derails in Chillicothe

CHILLICOTHE, OH (AP) --Norfolk-Southern Railroad says one of its trains derailed in Chillicothe.  

Norfolk-Southern says the 11 cars jumped the tracks shortly before midnight Monday.  No injuries were reported.

The train, which was traveling southbound, was not carrying any hazardous materials.

Officials say all of the cars stayed upright and crews are working to get them back on the tracks. It's unclear how long that will take.

Officials say at least two people were on board the train at the time of the derailment, an engineer and a conductor.

Norfolk Southern says the cause is still under investigation.
