Freight train cars derail in Hunts Point

Authorities are investigating a freight train derailment Wednesday in the Bronx.



It happened around 10 a.m. at the Oak Point Yard, located near Longwood and Garrison avenues in Hunts Point.



A CSX Transportation official says eight train cars came off the tracks; one of them was carrying lumber.
