MARSHALL, TX – A Union Pacific train derailed on Monday afternoon, May 3, 2010, in Marshall, Texas. The accident occurred at approximately 1:20 pm in the downtown rail-yard where the Marshall Depot is located, missing the historic Marshall Depot by about 10 feet. The depot is also where the railroad museum and Amtrak station is located.

The Marshall Fire Department reported on the day of the accident that about 14 train cars derailed, and about half were still on their sides.

KSLA, who covered the story, were told by the fire department that no hazardous materials were involved, but they did however kill the electricity because the crash took out a big transformer.

There were no reported injuries in the incident.

The cause of the derailment is still under investigation. contributed to this story
