NEW HAVEN, CT (WFSB/AP) -

A suspension of Amtrak train service due to a freight train derailment caused delays in New Haven on Wednesday morning.

The derailment happened in New York near the Hell Gate Line. The Fire Department of New York said no injuries are reported. Authorities said several freight cars went off the tracks at around 10 a.m.  

Amtrak tweeted that it was aware of the derailment and suspended Amtrak Northeast Regional and Acela Express service between NewYork-Presbyterian and New Rochelle.

Passengers traveling through the area were warned to expect delays.

Service between New York and New Rochelle resumed around 12:15 p.m. However, travelers should "expect residual delays as service levels return to normal," Amtrak said. 

There's no word on the cause of the derailment.
