Several rail crossings along U.S. 90A in Sugar Land will likely remain closed through rush hour as Union Pacific crews work to repair damage from a Monday afternoon train derailment.
A train was traveling west on the rail line when the wheels of one car jumped off the track just west of Main Street, Sugar Land city spokesman Doug Adolph said.
The train continued to travel west to Easton Avenue, causing significant damage to the track, before the engineer realized what had happened. "It was just tearing up concrete and railroad ties," Adolph said.
No injuries were reported and no train cars were overturned. Rail crossings west of Brooks Street and east of Easton Avenue, including the Texas 6/U.S. 90A interchange, will remain closed until the train is moved and repairs are complete.
