PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - A Union Pacific train derailed in the Albina Yard Saturday morning.

Officials with Union Pacific said a train derailed two locomotives and three tank cars in the Albina Yard in Portland around 9:19 a.m.

The derailed equipment collided with and cracked a support beam of the overpass for the eastbound lane of North Going Street, according to officials.

There were no releases from the tank cars, which contained Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG) and no injuries reported.

The cause is under investigation.

Sunday afternoon, crews reopened two lanes on North Going Street, one lane in each direction.

The road provides access for many workers to a major industrial area of the city. 

Engineers are looking into how badly damaged the support column is.

There is no timeline for when other lanes may be reopened.
