I-10 west at Piedras has been completely shut down after a train derailed near Cotton.

A look via TXDOT cameras show traffic backing up in the area. It happened around 8 tonight under the freeway. Police dispatchers tell us there were no injuries, but say there was damage to the interstate. For that reason they have decided to shutdown the freeway in and around Piedras heading west until TXDOT can make repairs.

There is no estimated time of completion. Drivers are encouraged to take an alternate route. We are told the closure may last as long as tomorrow.
