Tracks Repaired In Pritchett Derailment

New tracks were laid Thursday morning at the scene of a 21- train car derailment that occurred Wednesday in Upshur county. It happened early yesterday morning on the rail that runs parallel to highway 155 near f-m 1404 in Pritchett. That's just south of Gilmer.

Union Pacific officials told us today, it will be several more hours before trains are running on the track again. Tests of a local stream show the water was not contaminated by the derailment.
