Burlington Northern Santa Fe says the derailment is near a ferry terminal in Steilacoom, which is located just south of Tacoma. The derailment has blocked both sets of tracks.

The 95-car freight train with four locomotives was going less than 45 MPH when 13 cars jumped the tracks around 3:00 AM.

There are no injuries reported and the cause of the derailment is under investigation.
