HATFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - The Canadian National Railroad is still trying to figure out how one of its freight trains derailed in west central Wisconsin over the weekend.

Nineteen cars jumped the tracks near Hatfield in Jackson County. The railroad said the train was going east from Taylor to Wisconsin Rapids.

It was carrying an undisclosed amount of sand. No one was injured, and officials said nothing hazardous was spilled.

The derailment occurred late Saturday afternoon. County Trunk “K” near Hatfield was still closed Sunday, and officials could not immediately say when the tracks could be repaired.
