The Associated Press is reporting that two Union Pacific locomotives, along with three tank cars carrying liquified petroleum gas, derailed in Portland, Oregon on Saturday at about 9:20 a.m.
Union Pacific reported the tank cars did not rupture or leak, nor were there any injuries associated with the accident. However, the train did hit and crack a beam supporting an overpass that leads to Swan Island, an industrial portion of the city that provides employment for lots of people.
Until engineers can determine how badly damaged the support beam is, the road (North Going Street) and the bridge will be closed. Although no one knows when the bridge might reopen, there is another road leading to Swan Island, so workers can get to their jobs.
