BAIRD, Texas - A Union-Pacific train has derailed east of Baird. (MAP)
A Union-Pacific representative told KTXS that nine cars derailed Wednesday, four of which ended up in a creek bed below the track.
According to the representative, the company believes that flooding caused by heavy rain in the area destabilized the track.
The train was in the area hauling gravel to repair the damage caused to the track by the flood.
Nobody was injured from the derailment. The representative said no railroad crossings or roads were impacted.
The crash is still under investigation. KTXS will update this article if more details are released.
