(KSL News) Investigators will try to figure out today what caused a train to derail in Carbon County.

Yesterday a Union Pacific train left the track near Helper, spilling its load of coal.

Then a train coming from the opposite direction hit the derailed cars. A total of 18 cars went off the track.

No one was hurt in the accident, and none of the spilled material was hazardous.
