TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say no oil was spilled in the derailment of a train carrying petroleum through Tuscaloosa.

Seven tankers were among the rail cars that went off the tracks on Monday afternoon in the Buhl area.

Federal safety officials will investigate the cause of the accident.
