HARRIS COUNTY, Texas -– A crash between a tanker truck and two trains was reported in east Harris County shortly before noon Tuesday.

Air 11 flew overhead as crews worked to clean up the mess on Jacintoport Boulevard just east of Beltway 8.

Aerial views showed the truck was apparently struck by one train and then pushed into another. The truck’s tank was twisted but its cab, which was on its side, did not appear to be heavily damaged.

The trucker was taken to an area hospital to be checked out.

The tanker appeared to be leaking some kind of liquid.
