A streetcar derailed on the newly opened Rampart-St. Claude line Tuesday morning.

It happened at Canal St. and N. Rampart around 9 a.m.

No one but the driver was on the streetcar at the time.

It appeared to me a minor incident. No injuries have been reported.

There’s no word on what caused the streetcar to go off the tracks. The scene was clear around 9:30 a.m.

The new line operates from 6 a.m. to midnight, with a "red lady" streetcar rolling by every 20 minutes.
