Not too much analysis needed here. It happened on the East Bank approach to the bridge this morning, and it’s some pretty scary stuff. Amazing no one was killed.
A statement from Union Pacific…
“Due to the severe weather this morning four Union Pacific Railroad railcars derailed and dropped off the eastbank approach to the Huey P. Long Bridge. The railcars were empty and did not contain any hazardous materials. No leaks and no injuries are reported at this time. Jefferson Parish Police, Fire and other responders are on scene to secure the area.”
