Last week, a train derailed in Hays County just near First Avenue North.
According to the coordinator of the Alabama Emergency Agency, some of the train cars were transporting hazardous materials when the incident occurred.
When the train derailed, diesel fuel spilled, but was quickly contained. Firefighters responded to the accident, but it is unknown what caused the derailment at this time.
