A single locomotive overturned just before 3 p.m. and sent two workers to the hospital. Their injuries are reportedly not life-threatening. 

CSX, the railroad company operating the train, is investigating the incident. Covington Battalion Chief Seth Poston said crews will be working overnight to move the train upright.
