Officials will have to wait at least another day for the cleanup of several train cars that derailed Monday night in Old East Dallas.
Dallas Fire-Rescue responded about 6:30 p.m. Monday to a call about a train derailment in the 3600 block of Samuell Boulevard, near the Tenison Park Golf Course.
Four of the 14 cars in on the Dallas, Garland and Northeastern Railroad train, which was carrying a variety of materials, were leaning off the track. One of the train cars had isopropyl alcohol on board, but none of the hazardous material has been released and that car was secured, a company spokesperson said Tuesday.
With the arrival of some equipment Wednesday, the railroad company will focus on removing the car with the hazardous material before completing the rest of the cleanup and re-railing the remaining cars, according to the spokesman.
No injuries were reported, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said.
The golf course had been evacuated as a precaution, and all six lanes of Samuell Boulevard were shut down Monday night from Lawnview Avenue to Tenison Parkway, he said. The road reopened later Tuesday.
Officials have not determined what caused the train to derail.
