Train hauling giant turbine blades jumps tracks in east Harris County
HOUSTON – A train derailment was reported Monday in east Harris County.
The incident was reported about 1:20 p.m. off Industrial Road near 100 Street.
Harris County deputies said in a tweet that the train, which was hauling what appeared to be wind turbine blades, failed to make a turn and some box cars jumped the tracks.
Video from SKY2 showed one of the blades came off of the train and crashed through a fence. That same blade appeared to be touching a nearby power pole as well.
Deputies said there were no reports of injuries.
The incident is not affecting traffic, deputies said.
