Drone footage of a Canadian National train in British Columbia’s Fraser Valley shows railcars tangled and piled on top of each other.

Canadian National says 60 cars slipped off the track Sept. 14 on a bridge near Hunter Creek, which is just west of Hope, British Columbia. No injuries were reported.

Officials are saying the cars fell off the bridge and crashed below the structure, with some railcars landing in a waterway.

Canadian National, which has sent a team of environmental experts to the site, says the cars were carrying potash, which is used in fertilizer.
