(AP) No injuries were reported when six cars of a CSX Transportation train derailed near a train yard in North Charleston.

Area media outlets report that the 64-car train was entering the yard shortly before dawn on Saturday.

Several cars which are hopper cars designed to haul scrap metal turned on their sides. The cars were empty and crews hoped to have the cars back on the track Saturday afternoon.
