JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - Two CSX railroad employees hurt when a train derailed in Camden have been released from the hospital.

Benton County Emergency Management Agency Director Richard Kee told The Jackson Sun (https://bit.ly/ZU9lNP ) both men sustained minor injuries.

The train jumped the tracks Sunday night after a pond levee broke and flooded the area, including the tracks.

Kee says the train, including 14 cars, was not carrying anything on it when it derailed. Two trailers were near the tracks, but the train did not get close to them.

Kee says several of the train’s cars were moved Monday morning, and crews were working to set the locomotive upright.

People were working to replace the gravel and tracks. Crews estimated that the track would reopen by late Tuesday afternoon.
