Around the area: Big rig collides with train, topples
A big rig toppled over after it collided with a train early Monday morning just west of downtown.
The collision occurred about 7 a.m. in the 2000 block of Sherwin near
the Katy Freeway, according to the Houston Police Department.
No injuries were reported.
Police said the 18-wheeler turned over onto its side after the collision and the trailer broke open.
The train blocked at least one railroad crossing near the site,
snarling traffic for hours. It's unclear what caused the collision.
