BNSF conductor hospitalized for possible hazmat exposure

BRYAN COUNTY, OK - A Burlington Northern Santa Fe train conductor was taken to Texoma Medical Center in Denison early Wednesday morning after he possibly contacted hazardous materials.

Emergency crews responded to the train tracks just north of Platter Road around 3 a.m. A BNSF railroad conductor was inspecting a rail car when he started showing symptoms of possible exposure.

Bryan County emergency responders waited for a Hazardous Materials Team from Ft. Worth to arrive on scene.

Investigators say the train car contained propylene, which is described as practically odorless and tasteless.
