TWO FREIGHT TRAINS INVOLVED IN DERAILMENT

Two passing freight trains were involved in an early morning derailment Saturday that left 25 cars off the track and the rails closed for at least 24 hours, authorities said.

A single car began to derail as the trains passed Little Falls at 5:20 a.m., a CSX spokeswoman said, taking other cars from its train off with it.

CSX was trying to determine whether cars from the second train also left the tracks.

A Little Falls Fire Department spokesman said no injuries were reported.
