Three derailments in three months. And Congressman Louis Gohmert says that's enough. Gohmert met today with Upshur County officials to inspect the sites of the Union Pacific derailments in Pritchett. He agrees with the county judge and sheriff, and requests that "...any hazardous material be rerouted around this accident prone area until it can be completely repaired."
Gohmert is also calling on Union Pacific to more thouroughly investigate the track and speed up repairs, that right now, are not set to occur until January.
