Four rail cars carrying automobiles derailed this afternoon in Gardner, but no one was injured, a fire official said.
Gardner Fire Lieutenant Mike Boris said the incident occurred shortly before 3:45 p.m. He said he did not know if any of the vehicles on the train were damaged, or where the workers were taken after the derailment.
The train was a Providence and Worcester Railroad Co. train, Boris said. He added that MBTA commuter trains do not use that track.
It was not immediately known what caused the derailment.Travis Andersen can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter @TAGlobe.
