Train derails in Colton, closing 10 Freeway for three hours

Colton train derailment
A six-car Union Pacific train derailed early Tuesday morning in Colton, causing fears of a chemical spill that prompted the closure of all lanes on the 10 Freeway for three hours.

No chemicals, however, were spilled in the accident that occurred shortly before 2:30 a.m. near Valley Boulevard and H Street, according to a California Highway Patrol report.

But the freeway was closed in both directions at the 215 Freeway until shortly after 5:30 a.m.

No one was hurt in the accident.

Union Pacific officials could not be reached for comment early Tuesday.
