PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Officials are investigating after a freight train derailed in South Philadelphia overnight.
The derailment happened around midnight along the 3300 block of South Delaware Avenue, near Packer Avenue.
A CSX spokesperson says three empty cars derailed in the company's rail yard around midnight.
No one was injured in the incident and there is no danger to the public, the spokesperson said.
The cars are being placed back on the rails and will be ready by 8 a.m.
PECO said early Thursday morning that the derailed train came in contact with a utility pole and about nine customers lost power. The agency said crews deenergized the lines at the scene.
