Ramp Reopens After Train Derailment
A train derailment early Tuesday morning in west Tulsa closed off an area of Highway 75 for part of the morning.
Officials inspected the scene at the southbound Highway 75 ramp to West 21st Street. This is after a train car collided with a bridge ramp around 2 a.m. One of the derailed train cars near a bridge pier delayed crews, who could not assess the bridge until it is moved, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation reports.
KTUL learned that train company involved is BNSF. ODOT closed off the area until the support pier that the train car hit passed their inspection.
Officials at the scene added that they believe there was no significant damage to the pier. Crews worked through the morning to clear up the area and it has now been reopened.
No injuries were reported during the incident.
