A train deraied near Beckworth Tuesday afternoon. 30 cars of a Union-Pacific train went off the track. The freight train was coming from Denver heading to Oakland.
Union Pacific is reporting no injuries, but lots of debris from the flatbed cars. Clean-up is expected to go through the night.
The tracks in that area run parallel to Highway 70 between Chilcoot and Portola.
