TEMPLE, Texas — BNSF Railway officials are investigating the collision and derailment of two southbound trains near Temple in rural central Texas on Friday, the Associated Press reports.

The incident happened Friday morning when a Houston-bound intermodal train traveling at about 14 mph struck the rear end of a stopped southbound grain train near Temple. No injuries were reported and no hazardous materials spilled. The locomotives of the intermodal train did sustain moderate damage, however.

BNSF spokesman Joe Faust says the collision is under investigation.

Temple is located about 60 miles northeast of Austin on the railroad’s Galveston Subdivision.
