Heavy cranes righted the last of four railroad tank cars that derailed as a Southern Pacific freight train moved through Hawthorne. Two of the cars overturned, but there was no leakage of the liquefied petroleum gas they carried, a railroad dispatcher said. The other two cars, which were empty, left the tracks but stayed upright. Fire trucks and a hazardous materials team stood by during the overnight operation.
