Police, fire, and EMS were first dispatched to North Third Street and Crane Road for a possible derailed train just before 11:30 p.m. Sunday night, per initial reports.

When crews arrived on scene, it was determined that the computerized train lost a brake line, which indicated several train cars had detached from the train, according to officials. There was no sign of any train derailment.

Emergency scanner traffic indicated multiple crossing gates were down from North Third Street to Park Avenue as a result of the incident.

Crews were able to fix the problem and reattach the cars to the train nearly two hours after the initial dispatch.

No injuries were reported.

Authorities say all the impacted crossing gates through the city are now up and the train is moving again.
