SCRANTON -- Four train cars rolled on their sides, closing a section of track in Scranton.

It happened around 11 a.m. Friday along a stretch of track near Olive Street.

Railroad officials said the cars were loaded with sand.

The cause is under investigation. A railroad representative said the cause is "likely weather-related."

The tracks will be closed for the weekend. A contractor is expected at the scene Monday morning to start the cleanup.

Officials said nobody was hurt in the incident and there is no danger now.
