PA: No Leaks as Freight Train Derails

By KYW's Al Novack

Four cars of a freight train derailed in East Norriton, Montgomery County, but no hazardous material has spilled as a result.

Police say one of the cars did contain hazardous material, but with no leaks reported, operations are underway to get the trains back on their tracks.

As a precaution, four condominiums have been evacuated at the Stoney Creek condominium complex. No injuries are reported, and investigators are looking why those cars derailed.
