Train Derailment Causes Road Closures In Lincoln Heights

LINCOLN HEIGHTS — According to officials from the University of Southern California, a train has become derailed from its tracks in the Lincoln Heights area, causing several road closures in the vicinity.

Lincoln Heights is just north of downtown Los Angeles, east of Dodger Stadium, where the railroad tracks follow the Los Angeles River.

A Union Pacific official told CBS that 17 containers were impacted in the incident, which is located at LATC rail yard, the same spot where reports of vandalism and theft have made headlines over recent days.

As I posted on Thursday.

Back in 2018, I wrote about how often freight trains are derailed in Mexico by robbers. Not everything in Mexico spreads across the border, but sometimes what happens in Mexico doesn’t stay in Mexico.
