U.S. 95 near the Nevada-California border has actually resumed after a train derailment shut it down, according to state officials.

Prior to the incident, in which 15 train cars and trucks overturned this afternoon, the highway was already closed because of a mudslide hours previously, the Nevada Department of Transportation stated. The incident took place near Needles, Calif., about 120 miles south of Las Vegas.

The Nevada Highway Patrol about 7:30 p.m. announced that the train cars and trucks were cleared from the roadway. “Utilize care in the location as teams will remain on scene to examine,” the patrol said on Twitter.

The train was heading north to Nevada from California, officials said.
