FLORENCE — Colorado State Patrol says Highway 67 is back open just south of Highway 115 in Florence following a rail car derailment earlier this morning.

Colorado Department of Transportation used a front end loader to help the train crew drag enough rail cars out of the intersection to reopen Highway 67.

Colorado State Patrol tells News5 there are no fatalities or injuries.
