Cleanup crews were on the scene of a train derailment Tuesday afternoon, near the Trail Creek Road exit off I-90 between Bozeman and Livingston.

The incident occurred around 1 p.m. Tuesday. Montana Rail Link (MRL) says an estimated 40 coal-filled cars were involved. Spilled coal was visible at the scene.

MRL says the train was not carrying any hazardous material, and there were no injuries. The cause of the derailment is under investigation.

MRL does not currently have an estimated time for reopening the track.

This is a developing story.
