Right now-- we still do not know what caused this C-S- X train to derail this morning in Alachua County. 17 cars came off the tracks. Fortunately, no one was hurt. Parts of County Road 14-74, near U-S 301, will be closed for at least 24 hours while police continue to investigate. This is just a few miles north of the Hawthorne city limits.
