A large rock slide on a rain-saturated mountain caused a fiery train derailment Thursday morning in eastern Kentucky that briefly trapped two crew members and caused a chemical leak into a river, authorities said.

According to Fox Buisness, two crew members of the CSX train were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

The derailment happened in the small Pike County community of Draffin.

CSX said the train had 96 cars carrying ethanol and two cars loaded with rocks. Five rail cars derailed — four ethanol tanks and one other car.
