NEAR SANDPOINT-- A train carrying grain derailed in Bonners Ferry, Idaho Saturday morning as a result of rising water.

It happened around 9:00 a.m. near the Colburn Colver Road, just north of Sandpoint.

The train tracks were completely washed out by the water, which caused the train to fall. At least seven cars of the train broke open, spilling grain all over the area.

All roads are open in the area, but the tracks are shut down.

No one was injured.
