🕐 1 min read

ROGERS, Texas (AP) — Officials say nobody has been hurt after one BNSF Railway train hit another that was stopped on the same tracks in rural Central Texas.

A spokesman with Fort Worth-based BNSF said several cars derailed in the accident around 11:30 a.m. Friday near Rogers, about 60 miles northeast of Austin. Joe Faust said BNSF will investigate why one of its trains was stopped on the tracks.

Faust said the lead locomotive on a freight train hauling grain struck the rear car of a stopped train that was loaded with containers of consumer goods. No hazardous materials spilled.

Faust had no further details on how many cars derailed or destinations for the trains.

The rail line was closed to traffic following the accident. Crews were dispatched to clear the tracks.
