An investigation is underway to determine the cause of a train derailment in a Shreveport community.

Raquel Espinoza with Union Pacific says two empty railroad cars went off the track. It happened around 7:30 Saturday morning in the 5200 block of Alto Vista Street.

Crews spent the day putting the railroad cars back on the track. They’re expected to be finished by 6:30pm.

That portion of Alto Vista was blocked off from traffic for most of the day. No one was injured and crews still don’t know what caused the train derailment.
