MANILA, Philippines -- A Philippine National Railways train bound for Albay, with 120 passengers onboard, derailed in Sariaya, Quezon just past midnight Friday after heavy rains softened the track’s embankment.

In its official Twitter account, the PNR said three coaches of the five-car train set T611 headed for Ligao City derailed around 12:14 a.m.

The PNR said no one was hurt and passengers were ferried by bus to the Lucena City station where another train would take them on to Bicol.

It acknowledged that earlier inspections of the track had “failed to detect” the softening of the embankment.
