A train carrying shipping containers filled with consumer goods derailed near Station Square in Pittsburgh, PA this afternoon.

The crash, which saw seven cars fall into the station, didn’t injure passengers waiting for nearby light rail, although it will cause delays on Monday morning. West Carson street will be blocked off, and the Smithfield Street Bridge will be closed during rush hour.

Crews are expected to clean up the wreckage within 72 hours, and people should avoid the area while the work goes on.
