VANCOUVER - Two CP rail trains crashed near Golden early this morning sending several cars off of the tracks.

Transportation Safety Board spokesman Chris Krepski says an eastbound train hit another train around 2:25 a.m., Sept. 6.

Several cars derailed, including the first two locomotives and the first car — an empty potash car — of the eastbound train.

The last car of the other train — a non-dangerous goods car — also jumped the tracks.

Krepski says all of the cars remained upright and there have been no reports of leaks.

He says no injuries have been reported either.
