Private train cars separated from an Amtrak train rolled into the rest of the train, causing a minor derailment early Wednesday morning. 

According to an Amtrak spokesperson, two private train cars were separated from the train Tuesday night. The train had arrived at the Miami station, but was moved to Hialeah to be cleaned. 

The private train cars hit the train around 3:15 a.m. It is unclear why those cars were not locked down, as a spokesperson says they should have been. 

Sky 10 flew over the scene at Northwest 37th Avenue and Northwest 82nd Street as workers appeared to check for possible damage. 

Rerailing equipment is being brought in to fix the issue. No one was hurt.
