Crews contain fuel spill after train derailment on SW Side
SAN ANTONIO - Hazmat teams worked overnight to clean up a diesel fuel spill after a train derailed on the city's Southwest Side late Tuesday night, the San Antonio Fire Department said. Emergency crews were called to the tracks near South Brazos Street and Frio City Road just before 10 p.m. after roughly 12 cars derailed. According to San Antonio Fire Department spokesman Woody Woodward, it could be a day or more to get all the cars off the track and get the area back open. A Union Pacific spokesperson said in a statement Wednesday morning that they hope to fully reopen train traffic by early Thursday morning. Union Pacific investigators have been called in to determine what exactly happened.
