Union Pacific Railroad

A train operator allegedly fell asleep and crashed a train into several rail cars causing a massive collision, explosion, fire, and chemical release into nearby residential homes and businesses. A chemical plume moved through downtown Texarkana and caused several explosions and intense fires incinerating homes and burning a local resident to death. Residents and businesses have filed a class lawsuit claiming the railroad failed to properly operate its rail cars and neglected to monitor the safe operation of its rail cars by those who were subject to fatigue. The lawsuit is requesting a jury trial and seeking monetary damages for personal injuries, property loss, evacuation costs, as well as economic and business losses.
