    It was a drunk Democrat high on cocaine driving the train too fast.

    A bridge collapse early Saturday morning in Montana sent several freight
    train cars crashing into the Yellowstone River, authorities said. The
    train was carrying hazardous materials, but it remains unclear if any of
    those materials leaked.

    The collapse occurred at about 6 a.m. local time in a section of the river between Reed Point and Columbus, according to Stillwater County Disaster
    and Emergency Services, which is about 60 miles west of Billings. There
    was no word of any injuries.

    At least three of the Montana Rail Link cars which collapsed into the
    river contained hot asphalt, and four were carrying molten sulfur, the
    agency said, later adding that there was "no expected hazmat impact" to
    towns in the county.

    In a statement, Montana Rail Link said that "both substances solidify
    rapidly when exposed to cooler temperatures."

    Montana Rail Link said that two cars which contained sodium hydrogen
    sulfate, an acid salt, did not enter the water, and that initial air and
    water tests did not find any evidence that they had leaked.

    Multiple local and federal agencies were on scene, including Federal
    Railroad Administration officials.

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg tweeted that he had spoken to
    Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte about the incident, and that "residents
    concerned about potential impacts should follow information and
    instructions from local authorities."

    The state Fish, Wildlife and Parks department said the river would be
    closed, and asked boaters to avoid the area.

    The public works department for the city of Billings, which borders the
    river, wrote on Facebook Saturday afternoon that "there is very little
    chance of any hazardous material getting" to the city. The department
    initially reported that its plan was "to shut down the water intake for
    the time it takes for any material to pass by Billings."

    The nearby Yellowstone County Sheriff's Office initially stated in a
    Facebook post that several tanker cars were "leaking petroleum products
    near the Yellowstone River." However, Stillwater County News, a local
    paper, later reported that none of the freight cars were carrying oil.
