“There’s nothing we’re worrying about other than the headache of picking everything up,” Rodriguez told mySA.
It's still unclear what caused the derailment, which took place around 5 p.m. Sunday, just southeast of the S.E. Military Dr. and S. Presa St. intersection — less than 1/2 mile from the San Antonio River. But it's just a couple miles south from where another Union Pacific coal train derailed in December 2015. Clean up is expected to take several days.
A message left with Union Pacific by the Current has yet to be returned.
