WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) -- A BNSF spokesman said the section of railroad track where 25 cars carrying corn derailed west of Williston is open again.

BNSF spokesman Gus Melonas said the line reopened about 4:30 a.m., after crews worked through the night to shove the derailed cars off to the side and replace the damaged track.

The train was carrying corn from Minnesota to Washington state. Melonas said it derailed late Sunday night near the Montana border. No one was hurt.
