Train derails in Hitchcock

Thursday, October 20, 2011

A train derailed early Thursday morning in Hitchcock.

At least two rail cars slipped off the rails along the tracks in Galveston County. Highway 6 was closed for 20 minutes, while officials checked for spills or leaks.

None of the cars overturned and there was never a danger for any of the community.
