A mudslide in Boundary County, Idaho caused a dozen train cars to derail and fly down an embankment on Wednesday morning.

The cars were carrying grain. No hazardous material was involved.

Officials reviewed photos of the accident and determined that the train lost contact with the rails when it came to the area where the mudslide was.

The Boundary County Sheriff’s Office took aerial photos of the crash, one of which is featured above.

The incident happened around 7:30 a.m.
