A Canadian National Railway train has derailed on the 97th Street and Yellowhead Trail overpass.
The eight empty rail cars derailed shortly before 5 a.m. Sunday morning while moving in the Edmonton yard, CN spokeswoman Kate Fenske confirmed in an email.
The cars were not carrying dangerous goods, she said, and there were no injuries as a result of the derailment.
The cause of the derailment is under investigation, and the trains are being re-railed, Fenske said.
CN crews remain on scene Sunday afternoon. A large gouge could be seen in one of the train cars, and one car appeared to be tipped over the 97th Street overpass.
Traffic through the area remains open.
