ALEDO, TX (AP) -

A freight train derailment in North Texas has left a Union Pacific Railroad worker hurt and nine cars and locomotives off the tracks.

A Union Pacific spokesman said the derailment happened before dawn Thursday near Aledo. The area is about 15 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

Mark Davis said two locomotives and seven cars derailed. One locomotive ended up on its side. Davis said six cars were empty and the seventh carried a bulk load of cement that did not spill.

Davis said the 46-car train bound from Tucson to Dallas was pulling out of a side track onto the main line when the derailment happened.

Davis said a crew member was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries. Further details on the person weren't immediately available.
