PEOPLE are being advised to avoid a highway in Coolidge, Arizona after a train derailed.
Around 20 cars of a Union Pacific Railroad train derailed shortly before noon. However, no injuries were reported, Union Pacific said.
One of the cars was transporting cyclohexanone, a solvent used to degrease metals and for spot removal. The solvent spilled after the crash and Hazmat crews were called to clean it up.
The incident occurred in the area of La Palma Road and Highway 287, about five miles south of Coolidge.
Residents are being warned by public safety agencies to steer clear of the area in case there are any possible gas leaks caused by the incident.
Motorists are also encouraged to find an alternate driving route as nearby roads are expected to be closed for some time.
