Freight train derails in Central Alberta

The Transportation Safety Board is investigating after a Canadian Pacific train carrying potash derailed early Sunday morning.

The train was en route from Saskatchewan to the B.C. coast when 17 cars carrying potash derailed around 4 a.m. MT near the town of Provost, says CP spokesman Kevin Hyrska.

No one was injured and CP says there are no environmental concerns from the derailment.

It's not clear yet what caused the cars to leave the track.
