The Transportation Safety Board of Canada has deployed an investigator to the scene of a train derailment east of Lethbridge.
At about 2 a.m. Friday, a CP Rail freight train carrying grain derailed west of Barnwell, Alta., according to CP Rail.
About 25 bulk container cars came off the tracks near Range Road 18-1, according to the M.D. of Taber Regional Fire Service.
Range Road 18-1 north of Highway 3 was shut down to traffic Friday morning as crews worked to clean up the derailment. Westbound traffic on Highway 3 near Range Road 18-1 was reduced to one lane Friday morning.
CP Rail said no one was injured and there are no public safety concerns.
The TSB said Friday morning it deployed an investigator to the site of the Canadian Pacific Railway train derailment. The investigator will “gather information and assess the occurrence,” a statement from the TSB said.
CP Rail also dispatched a team to the site on Friday.
Barnwell is located about 50 kilometres northeast of Lethbridge.
