HYNDMAN, Pa. (KDKA) -- Several train cars carrying hazardous materials reportedly derailed in Bedford County on Friday evening.

According to WTAJ, four CSX train cars derailed just south of Hyndman around 7:30 p.m.

Emergency dispatchers told WTAJ the cars were carrying hazardous materials, but none of the cars were leaking.

KTAJ reports that a statement from CSX says the train was going to Maryland when at least four cars derailed, and no leaks or injuries have been reported.

In August, at least 32 CSX freight train cars carrying hazardous materials went off the tracks in Hyndman, forcing the entire town to evacuate. Most residents were allowed to return three days later.
