PROSPERITY -- Authorities say three boxcars carrying paper have derailed off a train track near Prosperity.
Newberry County Sheriff Lee Foster said the cars came off a side track near U.S. Highway 76 around 10 a.m. Monday. He says there is no threat to the public and traffic is not blocked. No injuries were reported.
Foster says the tracks are a shared line with CSX. He says deputies are waiting for heavy equipment to get the cars back on the track.
The sheriff says there may be traffic backups in the area because so many people are coming out to look at what happened.
