Beaumont park remains closed after train derailment spills grain

A train derailed in downtown Beaumont Saturday, leaving grain spilled through a portion of the rail yards.

Authorities say four rail cars overturned, forcing authorities to close Riverfront Park behind city hall. Burlington Northern Santa Fe workers arrived on the scene and told 12News it appears as though a rail track broke, causing the spill.

There were no injuries reported as a result of the spill.

Officials with the Texas Parks and Wildlife also responded to the scene.
