Hwy 2A is closed after a train derailed between Penhold and Red Deer Friday afternoon.
Blackfalds RCMP and Red Deer County firefighters were called to the scene near Township Road 374 where seven rail cars left the tracks.
The cars were carrying crude oil, one of which was leaking. No evacuations were needed because the derailment happened in a rural non-residential area.
No injuries were reported.
Hwy 2A is expected to be closed throughout Saturday for road cleanup. Police say they appreciate the patience and understanding of motorists.
