A derailed freight train is causing Metrolink's Orange County line to miss its Commerce stop, reports City News Service.

The derailment happened at about midnight last night, according to KTLA, when six cars went off the tracks. No one was hurt, but as crews work to clean up the accident, the Metrolink line can't pass through. Travelers are being taken to Commerce from a bus at the Norwalk stop instead.

It's not clear what caused the accident.
