SAGINAW, Mich. — Officials are looking into an early morning train car derailment in Saginaw.

MLive.com reports that two train cars had rolled onto their sides and were blocking a street about 4 a.m. Saturday.

The train cars were hauling coal. At least five of the railcars were off the tracks, about 85 miles northwest of Detroit.

Five train cars hauling grain derailed last month along tracks in Saginaw County.
