Train carrying military vehicles derails in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - A train is derailed along tracks south of downtown Colorado Springs.

A KKTV crew observed multiple train cars carrying heavy military equipment tipped over along Las Vegas Street, just south of Circle Drive, around 6 p.m. Monday night.

CSPD reports Las Vegas is shut down between Janitell and Highway 85/87.

Union Pacific confirms eight rail cars went off the tracks. No one is injured.

It’s unclear where the train was heading. A KKTV crew on scene spoke with people who work nearby who witnessed the derailment. They said the train did not appear to be moving quickly when it happened.

KKTV has reached out multiple other agencies to learn more.
