    As many as three cars of a 14-car train derailed near a golf course in South Dallas early Monday night, Dallas Fire-Rescue officials say.

    The incident happened around 6:25 p.m. Monday in the 3600 block of Samuel Boulevard near Tenison Park Golf Course, DFR said.

    Only one of the 14 cars contains a hazardous material, officials said, and that car was still on the tracks.

    Authorities at the derailment site stabilized the three cars that were leaning off the tracks, DFR said. The train company would send a crew to finish the job Tuesday morning.
