One thought on “Pedestrian struck by train near Hopkins Street

  1. Are you going to follow this up just as you have done for the recent derailment near centerpoint road? If so, then there is no need to follow the Mercury for local news. Railroad accidents (and now derailments) are far too frequent in this area. And we seldom, if ever, get an adequate rundown of the who, what, when, where and why. Why is that? (The Record, of course, is hopeless.) Union Pacific (I guess) carries who knows what materials through here. You should find out. In this latest case, which occurred near the big HEB in SM, tanker cars were stalled accross Hopkins for some time. What was in those cars? Please inform us. Thanks.
