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.
