LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) — A CSX spokeswoman say a train’s locomotive derailed in Lynchburg after it hit debris from a rock slide.

CSX spokeswoman Kaitlyn Barrett tells The News & Advance (http://bit.ly/1LsCAOi ) that the 104-car train was carrying empty crude oil cars, along with two cars containing industrial sand. One of the cars containing industrial sand was damaged.

Barrett says there were no leaks or injuries.

The incident occurred around 3 a.m. Sunday near the site where a CSX train carrying crude oil derailed in April 2014. That derailment sent 30,000 gallons of crude oil in the James River.
