Troopers tell us State Road 64 on the Pike-Gibson County line is back open after being closed for several hours overnight due to a train derailment.

Pike County dispatch tells 14 News it was a Norfolk train that derailed. There's no word on what the train was hauling or if there were any injuries.

It happened Tuesday night around 11 p.m. near Oakland City.
