DODGE COUNTY, Neb. (AP) - A coal train headed from Illinois to Wyoming derailed in eastern Nebraska on Friday.

Union Pacific spokesman Mark Davis says 22 cars derailed at around 4:45 a.m. in North Bend, just east of Omaha.

No injuries were reported following the wreck.

KMTV (https://bit.ly/1xoJ89D ) says crews were working Friday to remove the derailed cars and coal and replace 1,700 feet of track.

Davis says the line could reopen as soon as Saturday.
