Floodwater overturns train off of tracks in Texas

Posted: Updated:
CORSICANA, Texas (KWWL) -

Floodwater caused a cargo train to topple off of its tracks near Corsicana, Texas early Saturday morning.

A rescue team pulled two crew members from the partially submerged train, while luckily no one was injured in the incident.

The train was carrying cement when it ran into high water and was forced off of the tracks, about 50 miles south of Dallas.

The National Weather Service says more than 18 inches of rain has fallen on the area since late Thursday, as a powerful cell converges with remnants of the storm pushed ashore by Hurricane Patricia over Texas this weekend.
