BRISTOL, Tenn. — Three empty train cars went off the tracks Friday along the Norfolk Southern line in Bristol, Tennessee.

Capt. Charlie Thomas of the Bristol Tennessee Police Department said there was no danger to anyone, but it would take time to clear the scene. The railroad crossing at Industrial Drive was blocked for hours.

Police and fire, as well as a crew from the Norfolk Southern Railway, responded to the scene.
