5-19-14

CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Conrail says four empty cars of a freight train derailed in Camden, but no one was hurt and nothing was damaged.

Conrail spokesman John Enright says the derailment happened at about 3 a.m. Monday on the Conrail Camden Belt Line near Jefferson Street in South Camden.

All four of the gondola cars were expected to be put back on the track later Monday. The train and tracks are owned by Conrail, and it was a Conrail crew operating it.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.

Enright says no one was hurt, no third-party property was damaged and no streets were blocked.
