Shuttles are running between the Potomac Yard Metro station and National Airport Metro station after a derailment this morning.

Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) said there were no injuries in the derailment and shuttles are ferrying passengers between the stations.

Approximately 50 passengers were on the train when it was derailed and have been transferred via shuttle to another train, WMATA said.

WMATA said crews are currently performing track inspections ahead of single tracking rail service in the area.
