7-21-06 - Several cars of a Burglington Northern Sante Fe freight train derailed in rural Pontotoc County Friday afternoon. The ten cars overturned one mile south of Latta around 4:45pm.
Authorities believe the intense temperatures might have caused the ground to shift which weakened the track.
There were no evacuations nor injuries. Highway 1 northbound was blocked with emergency vehicles for a short time.
