PARAGOULD, AR - Witnesses in Paragould say one of the train cars started bouncing and suddenly started going down.

Thirteen cars came off the tracks near the Emerson Electric plant on Highway 69 Sunday night.

An investigation will be conducted by Union Pacific Railroad, and officials say they expect that stretch of tracks to be shut down for at least a day-and-a-half.
