Sheriff Kerry Lee of Lincoln County told Fox 13 that some train cars carried dangerous goods, but that these cars were not touched during the accident.

County Road 4230 in Nevada, between Elgin and Carp, is expected to remain closed for seven to ten days due to train cars, construction equipment and debris blocking the road, the station said.
