Six empty freight cars derailed near Ontario on Wednesday, shutting down early morning traffic along a major thoroughfare for about six hours until the cars were righted. The Union Pacific cars, which had unloaded a shipment of vehicles at the Mira Loma Auto Facility, derailed about 1:45 a.m. in the same area as they were being maneuvered by a locomotive to form a new train. Some of the cars derailed on an overpass above Etiwanda Avenue, prompting its precautionary closure.
