BENNET, Neb. (KLKN) – A train has derailed near Bennet, Nebraska, just south of Saltillo road.
This is on the recently re-activated railroad tracks that sat dormant for almost two decades. Witnesses tell us some crossings near Bennet were blocked after the derailment around 7 pm.
The cause of the derailment is not known. We do know that more than 4 inches of rain have fallen in that area the past couple of days and was exposed to flash flooding, but it’s unclear if there is any connection between the two.
We have a crew on the way and will bring you the latest information as we get it.
