CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) — CSX Transportation says it’s trying to find out what caused eight empty rail cars to derail in Ohio, sending three of them into a creek.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the derailment in Cincinnati occurred at about 8 p.m. Friday.

CSX spokeswoman Cindy Schild said in an email that three of the cars ended up in Mill Creek and another three landed on the banks of the creek.

Schild said CSX expected to retrieve all the rail cars Sunday afternoon.

She said “there were no releases to the environment as the cars were empty.”

The cause of the derailment remains under investigation.
