Early yesterday morning, two train cars slipped off the tracks near C Street and Adams Avenue, causing road closures in several locations.
The affected roads were:
– Adams Avenue
– 1st Street
– 3rd Street
– 7th Street
– 13th Street
– 77 Sunshine Strip
The roads were blocked off to traffic for most of the day.

At that time, police said crews were working to clean up debris and almost ready to reopen the roads.
The police department and Texas Railroad Commission will continue to investigate.
