TRAFFIC ALERT: MAX disruption
PORTLAND, Ore. - Downtown Portland MAX service will be disrupted through rush hour after a westbound train derailed at Southwest 11th and Southwest Morrison.

Though some 200 passengers were on board when it happened about 4 p.m., no one was injured.

Mary Fetsch, a TriMet spokeswoman, said the derailment was minor and was possibly caused by switches being out of alignment.

Until the problem is fixed, MAX passengers need to take shuttle buses between the Rose Quarter and PGE Park. Portland streetcar service was also impacted at 11th Avenue.
