BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WHAS11)- Investigators say a Sunday afternoon train derailment in Monroe Co., Indiana may have been cause by extreme heat.

Sheriff Deputies say the derailment, where at least 10 cars jumped the tracks, was not caused by human error. They said the train engineer told them the extreme heat makes steel tracks expand and contract.
