NCPD: 6 train cars derail on Rivers Ave.


North Charleston police say multiple train cars derailed in North Charleston Saturday morning, resulting in road closures.

Police say six CSX train cars came off the tracks at Durant Avenue crossing in the area of Rivers Avenue and Meeting Street around 5 a.m. Several of them rolled onto their side.

None of the six cars contained hazardous materials. 

The incident completely blocked Rivers Avenue and Meeting Street. A Live 5 photographer on the scene says Rivers has since been opened, but Meeting remains closed. 

CSX officials say a crew is expected to arrive this afternoon to get the trains back on the tracks.

Officials say no injuries were reported.
