PHILADELPHIA (AP/NBC) — Amtrak says service between Philadelphia and Washington has been temporarily suspended due to a freight train derailment in southeastern Pennsylvania.

NBC Philadelphia reports a Norfolk Southern freight train derailed under an interstate overpass in Crum Lynne, about 20 miles southwest of Philadelphia. No injuries were reported.

Service was running with 30-minute delays before Amtrak suspended service shortly after 5 a.m. Thursday. Media reports say two cars on the 88-car train dumped loads of stone onto the tracks.

A large crane was brought in to upright the overturned cars.
