DOUGHERTY, Okla. (AP) -- Nobody was hurt when 20 cars of a Burlington Northern Santa Fe train derailed in Murray County, Oklahoma.

The cleanup continues.

Fort Worth-based BNSF says the accident happened Wednesday night near Dougherty, about 15 miles north of Ardmore.

Spokesman Joe Faust says the train was hauling grain from Waverly, Illinois, to Eagle Pass, Texas.

Nineteen of the derailed cars were carrying grain and one was empty.

The cause of the derailment is still under investigation.
