Three train cars derail in Manor

Crews are working to clean up three rail cars carrying fertilizer and gravel that derailed in Manor early Thursday morning.

The Texas Department of Public Safety said they were notified of the derailment near Old Highway 20 around 2 a.m. Thursday, and the City of Manor added the derailment happened near the Parmer Lane crossing. DPS added the intersection will be closed until around 5 p.m. Thursday because a large crane must be brought in to remove the cars.

The cause of the derailment is under investigation and no injuries have been reported.
