Train derails in Bell County

Local News

Clean up is underway after 13 cars of a Union Pacific train derailed in Holland early Friday morning.

City officials say the train had blocked Travis and Fanin Streets, the main entrances to Holland from Highway 95 at first. Crews have now cleared those intersections.

Union Pacific tells FOX44 News that some of the train cars had rice and sand in them. One carried diesel fuel, but it stayed upright so nothing spilled out.

There is no word yet on what caused the train cars to go off the tracks, but we do know there are no injuries.
