A BNSF locomotive derailed near Bunge causing damage to city streets Friday. 

According to Emporia Police Administrative Sergeant Lisa Sage the derailment occurred at E. Ninth Avenue in between East and Topeka Streets. The locomotive moved through a buffer barrier and tore up the road. Streets were barricaded off so the railroad can remove the train. 

We will update with more information as it becomes available.
