Reavis Road is open again after railroad crews worked overnight on the derailment of two cars from a Burlington Northern Santa Fe freight train.

St. Louis County Police say a mechanical problem with a Burlington Northern freight train caused several cars to derail shortly after 8 p.m.

Reavis Road had to be closed between Tesson Ferry and McKenzie in Affton while crews made repairs and got the rail cars back on the track.

There had initially been some concern about a possible leak, but officials say all of the affected cars were empty. And no one was injured.

Officials expect to have Reavis Road back open by 7:00 a.m.
