PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Union Pacific said two locomotives and three tank cars containing liquefied petroleum gas derailed in Portland, striking and cracking a support beam to an overpass providing access to a major industrial area.
The company said there were no injuries and none of the tanks leaked in the derailment that happened at about 9:20 a.m. Saturday.
Crews worked to get the locomotives and tank cars back on the tracks.
Portland Bureau of Transportation spokesman Dylan Rivera said North Going Street was closed until city engineers determine how much damage the overpass sustained.
It's not clear when the road might reopen.
The road provides access to Swan Island, a major industrial area of the city with many workers.
Rivera said a small private road is being used to access Swan Island.
