Pacoima Train Jumped Tracks, Buses Being Offered to Commuters
A derailed freight train in Pacoima means that some folks will have to take buses for their morning commute, reports NBC Los Angeles.
No one was hurt when the train jumped the tracks at about 10:00 p.m. last night on the Antelope Valley line that runs between Newhall and downtown Burbank. Metrolink is providing buses along the train's usual route this morning as crews work to clean up the area and realign the train.
KABC notes that the train will run into Los Angeles.
