Trail derails in Bond County, IL

Clean up continues after a train derailed in Bond County Monday morning.

Just before 6 AM 18 cars jumped off the tracks near Main St. in the town of Smithboro. Investigators say the 59-car CSX train was going from East St. Louis to Avon, Indiana.

No injuries were reported and investigators continue work to determine the cause of the derailment. 

CHICAGO (AP) - Opponents and supporters of same-sex marriage are gearing up for another push in the Illinois Legislature.

Supporters are planning a march and rally in Springfield on Tuesday, the first day of the Legislature's fall session. Gov. Pat Quinn and other lawmakers who support legislation legalizing same-sex marriage are expected to participate.

Opponents have scheduled a prayer rally at the Capitol on Wednesday. A group of African American clergy who oppose the measure also recorded radio ads in which they urge listeners to call lawmakers and tell them to vote no.

The Illinois Senate approved the legislation in February. The spring session ended without a House vote, after the bill's sponsor said he didn't have the support to pass it.

It's unclear if a vote will occur during the fall session.
