Train cars collided Wednesday morning, spilling hazardous material in a rail yard north Houston.
The incident occurred about 7 a.m. in the Union Pacific Railroad's Settegast Yard near the North Loop and Kirkpatrick, said Jeff DeGraff, a UP spokesman.
DeGraff said one tanker car hit another one during routine switching operations in the yard. One of the cars was punctured during the collision and Sodium Hydro Sulfide leaked out onto the ground. The spill has been contained.
According to the Houston Fire Department one person was taken for evaluation to Northeast Medical Hospital. The person's condition was not released.
DeGraff said three patients were taken away from a dialysis center near the yard as a precaution but they have since returned to the center.
