Two Harbors, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The two men hurt in a train derailment last Thursday in Two Harbors are out of the hospital.

Patrick Waldron with the Canadian National Railway wouldn't comment on when they were released or the extent of their injuries.

We learned earlier this week, those two crew members weren't on the lead locomotive when the derailment happened.

Officials say the two men applied the emergency break and exited before the derailment.

Nearly 100 cars left the track in the incident.

The Federal Railroad Administration is leading the investigation.
