A train derailed Thursday afternoon in Glendale, after trying to avoid a semi that got stuck on the tracks across the Gideon Church Road.
Kentucky State Police in Elizabethtown said the derailment happened just before 3 p.m. at the crossing in the center of town on Kentucky 222, which is also known as Glendale-Hodgenville Road.
KSP Trooper Scotty Sharp said one person, who was nearby the train when it derailed, suffered a minor injury.
Sharp said the train was not carrying any chemicals. It was transporting cars. He did not have a timeline for the cleanup.
CSX released a statement Thursday evening that said the train went into emergency attempting to avoid a collision with a semi-truck and trailer. The statement also said 21 cars derailed because the train had to brake to avoid the truck.
Traffic on Kentucky 222 and 1136 was blocked for several hours for cleanup and an investigation.
