DENISON, Texas (KXII) - Crews with the Dallas Garland and Northeastern Railroad are still working to clear a train derailment near West Morton St., in Denison.

It happened just after 4 p.m., on Tuesday afternoon.

Witnesses say at least six cars overturned and the track separated.

Neighbors tell us the normally quiet street was shaken by the sound of a loud bang.

“I heard the horn honking and next thing I know there was a loud boom,” said resident, Jeremy Auldrideg. “And I didn’t know if there was a crash in the street or something, so I ran outside, I looked around and the neighbor from across the street had been running hysterically.”

It is still unclear what caused the derailment and no injuries have been reported.
