PLEASANTON -- Officials from the Union Pacific Railroad are searching for the cause of a train derailment here this morning.

Lt. Ronald Sanchez of the Pleasanton Police Department said police were called to the 2900 block of Second Street at approximately 8 a.m. The location is near the junction of U.S. 281 and S.H. 97.

When they arrived, officers found that five cars from a freight train hauling gravel had left the tracks. Three of the cars toppled over. Sanchez said the conductor reported that he was traveling at just 5 mph prior to the incident. There were no injuries.

Officers from the Union Pacific Railroad Police assisted Pleasanton officers at the scene.
