A Union Pacific train derailment west of Cheyenne Friday evening is under investigation, according to a railroad spokesperson.

Kristin South gave Townsquare Media of Cheyenne the following statement on Saturday morning:

''Just before 5 p.m. MT, approximately 9 cars on a Union Pacific train derailed outside of Cheyenne. No one was hurt and nothing was spilled. Crews remain on the scene clearing cars. The cause is under investigation.''

The derailment happened a few miles west of Cheyenne just off Otto Road, a little west of the Dyno Nobel plant. We will report further details on the derailment as they are made available.
