A train derailed the night of Aug. 9 and created a dangerous situation for one driver in Runnels County.

Officials say part of the railing along the track broke and sent debris onto Highway 67.

Traffic was diverted to one lane of the highway.

However, an oncoming vehicle with two passengers collided with the debris from the derailment.

The driver of the vehicle suffered injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital.

The passenger as well as the driver of the train are both okay.

Elizabeth Grindstaff, vice-president of marketing at Texas Pacifico, said, they're working to investigate this derailment.

"This has been functioning," she said. "We'll have to see what the cause was, [if] it was at a joint or at some location within the rail," she said.

It will take about 24 hours to repair the damaged track.
