Several cars of a train came off the tracks in Dakota City, NE, early Thursday morning according to a report at KTIV.com

Around 4:45 a.m., near Roth Industrial Park, six cars of a Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway train derailed, but remained upright.

A spokesperson says a switch, which crews were working on after the accident, was already scheduled to be replaced and was not the cause of the derailment. 

The main line is now open.
