Buses are replacing the Green Line and Blue Line trains in downtown Minneapolis after one of them derailed on Saturday night. 

According to Metro Transit, around 8:30 p.m. a Green Line train was moving westbound between Nicollet Mall and the Warehouse District/Hennepin stations when it came off the tracks. 

A preliminary investigation suggests the train hit a concrete object in the area of the tracks, which caused it to derail, Metro Transit says. Three passengers reported minor injuries, none were transported to the hospital.
