SOUTH BEND Several people in the River Park neighborhood were awoken by a loud noise Monday night. It was the sound of a freight train leaving the tracks.

It happened along the tracks south of Jefferson, between 32nd and 33rd streets.

It wasn’t an extreme derailment. The wheels left the rails, but the cars did not move far off the track. Police say a line broke between two cars, but no cargo was spilled and no one was injured.
