JANESVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - A minor train derailment tied up traffic in downtown Janesville during Wednesday morning's rush hour.  

Police said two grain cars on a Wisconsin and Southern Railroad train jumped the tracks.

Rock County sheriff's officials got the word around 5 a.m. Media reports said none of the cars tipped over, and the fallen grain did not pose a health risk to anyone nearby.  

Traffic was diverted in anticipation of the morning commute. Among the roads was one of downtown Janesville's major arteries, Court Street.
