Rail cars jump the tracks in Ritter, IA train derailment


Several train cars have jumped the tracks in the small northwest Iowa town of Ritter.

KTIV NewsSpotters say between 15 and 25 cars are off the tracks near the Farmers Co-Op Society grain elevator in Ritter, which is north of Sheldon along Highway 60.

A dispatcher with the O'Brien County Sheriff's office confirms the derailment. She says there weren't any injuries. But, the dispatcher didn't have many other details because O'Brien County deputies weren't needed at the scene.
