Houston, TX (November 24, 2021) – Crews are working to remove debris from a collision involving a tractor-trailer and a train in Houston’s East End on Tuesday, November 23rd.
At about 2:00 p.m., the Houston Fire Department responded to Clinton Street where a train derailment left a tractor-trailer split almost in half.
Officials said one person was transported to an area hospital in unknown condition.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
