Tulsa police said a train has derailed at the west Tulsa railroad yard.

Police said the train derailed under the 21st Street Bridge in the west railroad yard.

"Five cars derailed in the yard at approximately 10 a.m.," BNSF said in a statement. "There were no injuries and no Haz Mat. Crews are working to re-rail cars."

After the derailment, one of the railcars was up against a column support of the 23rd Street Bridge, so ODOT said they sent crews out to inspect it.

"I just talked to our crew and they inspected the bridge this morning when it happened and said there’s no damage to the bridge," ODOT said in a statement.
