OTHER MAJOR TRAIN WRECKS IN TEXAS
LULING TRAIN WRECK
Luling had a terrible and destructive train wreck back in August 2021, an 18-wheeler carrying what seems to be a turbine wing was making a right turn from US 183 in Luling, Texas, and got stuck.
The wing seems to be stuck somewhere which prevented the 18-wheeler from clearing the train tracks. In a last-second effort to save himself, the driver jumped out of the truck and ran.
Around 6:20 am, a train was traveling through Beaumont, Texas. A Coca-Cola 18-wheeler was making its way over the train tracks when suddenly it became stuck.
Unable to successfully move the truck out of the way, the train collided with it, causing a massive crash.
