A second Union Pacific train in a little over a month derailed near Tehachapi early Monday morning.
According to Union Pacific spokesperson Aaron Hunt, the accident took place on a Union Pacific track at around 2:30 a.m., May 20, when a UP locomotive was rear ended by a BNSF Railway train southwest of Highway 58 just east of Broome Road at Walong.
One engine derailed upright and four rail cars derailed on their sides.
Hunt said there were no injuries to any of the crew members on either train and no hazardous materials were involved.
The train cargo included apparently new vehicles.
"The locomotive was located on the rear end of the train so we did not have any Union Pacific train crew members in the locomotive at the time of the incident," Hunt said.
Hunt also added that the extent of the track damage was unknown at this time, but said crews were working Monday to reopen the rail line as soon as possible.
There is typically little train traffic on Mondays due to regular track maintenance.
The cause of the derailment was not known and an investigation is ongoing.
