DENVER (KDVR) — A train carrying military equipment derailed Monday evening in Colorado Springs, according to police.
The Colorado Springs Police Department said the derailment was reported around 6:25 p.m. Officers confirmed the crash happened in the 2700 block of East Las Vegas Street, near the El Paso County jail.
“CSPD responded to provide traffic control and support while railroad officials make the repairs and move the cargo,” police said in a release.
Photos showed train cars and equipment off the tracks and leaning precariously, FOX21 reported. Fort Carson confirmed the derailment to the news station but could not provide any additional details.
The department pointed media to Union Pacific railroad for further inquiries about the crash.
Police said there were no known injuries.
East Las Vegas Street was to remain closed in both directions “for the foreseeable future” from Janitell Road to Highway 85/87. Drivers were urged to use Interstate 25 or Academy Boulevard for north-south travel.
