Freight Train Derails Southwest of Downtown

Eleven cars of a freight train derailed overnight on the tracks that run to the west of downtown, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

The train derailed near S. Brazos and Frio City Rd, forcing several streets in the area to be closed to traffic.

The train was not carrying any hazardous materials. Officials say most of the cars that derailed were carrying pallets of sheet rock.

But the locomotive did spring a leak, requiring hazardous materials crews to be called to the location, and a tanker be brought in to collect the spilled fuel.

Nobody was hurt. No word on what caused the derailment.
