ALEDO, Texas (AP) - A freight train derailment in North Texas has left a Union Pacific Railroad worker hurt and nine cars and locomotives off the tracks.
A Union Pacific spokesman says the derailment happened before dawn Thursday near Aledo (uh-LEE'-doh). The area is about 15 miles southwest of Fort Worth.
Mark Davis says two locomotives and seven cars derailed. Davis says six cars were empty and the seventh carried a bulk load of cement that did not spill.
Davis says the 46-car train bound from Tucson, Ariz., to Dallas was pulling out of a side track onto the main line when the derailment happened.
Davis says a crewmember was transported to a hospital with unknown injuries. Further details on the person weren't immediately available.
