There was a train derailment just over the Kern County Line in Tulare County. 

According to Tulare County Sheriff's deputies, nearly 17 train cars derailed. 

The California Highway Patrol and sheriff's helped with traffic control, as the Department of Fish and Wildlife investigated a possible fuel leak.
