Watch: Several train cars derail in Kansas City
The train was heading through the Santa Fe Junction when six cars derailed, causing a series of crashes.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Several train cars derailed while traveling through Kansas City Wednesday evening.
The train was heading through the Santa Fe Junction around 5 p.m. when six cars derailed, a Union Pacific spokesperson told FOX Weather. Video from the scene showed one car striking an overhead bridge during the crash.
No one was hurt.
When asked if weather could have been a factor in the crash, Union Pacific said they are still investigating the cause, and it was too early to speculate.
It had snowed earlier in the day and temperatures were in the upper teens with wind gusts to 30 mph at the time of the crash.
Train derails in Oklahoma too
The Kansas City incident was the second train derailment to occur in the Midwest on Wednesday. A Burlington Northern Santa Fe trail derailed in Wayne, Oklahoma around 3:10 p.m.
Five cars were knocked off the tracks in this incident, with one spilling plastic pellets, according to the Purcell, Oklahoma Fire Department.
Again, no one was injured.
A BNSF spokesperson said they are working to help clean up the crash site and make necessary track repairs.
The cause of that derailment also remains under investigation.
