A freight train has jumped the tracks in north Tulsa. About 20-cars are off the track just north of Pine between Yale and Sheridan, along Dawson Road.

No one has been hurt. Some diesel fuel spilled, but it was quickly contained by the Tulsa Fire Department's Hazardous Materials Unit.

Burlington Northern Railway will handle the investigation. There has been no reason given for the derailment. Expect delays this morning if you use Yale or Sheridan in the Dawson area of North Tulsa.
