JENKINSVILLE, S.C. (AP) - A train carrying nearly 100 BMWs from a plant in the Upstate has derailed near Columbia.

Multiple media outlets report that train was on its way to Charleston from the BMW plant in Greer when it derailed in Jenkinsville on Sunday afternoon.

Officials say no people were hurt but that two locomotives and 97 BMW cars were damaged.

Authorities say drivers should expect delays because heavy equipment is being brought in to set the rail cars upright and repair the tracks.
