No injuries, no leaks, no spills - you could call it a miracle after 11 freight cars derail in Selkirk Saturday.

Spokesman, Robert Doolittle spoke to the Times Union about the incident explaining that a New Jersey-bound-train sideswiped cars that were next to the track around 7pm on Saturday evening.

Three of the cars involved were carrying deliveries while the other eight cars were not moving. Most were empty cars, with one carrying lumber and another a tanker filled with a chemical used as a pigment within paint, cosmetics and sunscreen.

The cause of the incident is under investigation.
