WAYNOKA, Oklahoma -

Emergency crews are on the scene of a train derailment near Waynoka, Oklahoma, Sunday morning. 

At about 7:30 a.m. a BNSF train carrying consumer products derailed in the area of NS 330 and Comanche Rd., about two miles north and one mile east of Waynoka. The train was heading westbound to Los Angeles at the time.

Authorities say the train was going 56 mph when it derailed. The speed limit is 60 mph.

First responders on the scene say a total of 40 trailers of the train derailed, spilling beer and soda cans, as well as paper rolls all over the railway.

Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corp. (BNSF) is in charge of cleaning up the scene. The train was carrying "mixed freight," according to Joe Faust, Director of Public Relations for BNSF.

No injuries have been reported. The town of Waynoka was not evacuated, according to Woods County Sheriff Rudy Briggs Jr.

Faust says no roads or highways in the area were shut down as a result of the derailment. The railroad is expected to be back open 2 p.m. Monday.
