A cargo train derailed in Pittsburgh Thursday morning.

Photographs showed train cars tipped over on their sides. No injuries were reported, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

It wasn't immediately clear what the train was carrying, although the Tribune-Review reported there did not appear to be signs of any hazardous materials spilled.

Allegheny Valley Railroad confirmed to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that it owns the freight-liner train but didn't provide any details.

The derailment comes just two days after an Amtrak passenger train went off the rails, killing seven people and injuring more than 200.
