Coal train derails near Mansfield, no injuries

🕐 1 min read

MANSFIELD, Texas (AP) — A Mansfield fire official says part of a coal train derailed near the Dallas-area suburb but no injuries were reported.

Mansfield Assistant Fire Chief Michael Ross says there was no immediate determination of why 26 cars of the train came off the tracks Sunday.

The train had more than 130 cars. Ross said the crash spilled a lot of coal but happened in a rural area away from any homes or buildings.

Emergency crews found a small area of the wreckage that was smoldering but quickly doused it to prevent a larger fire. Ross said none of the train crew required any medical attention.
