The clean-up process is underway in Brenham, after a train jumped the tracks Monday night and tumbled off an overpass.

Three intersections have re-opened and Brenham police say trains are running again on a regular schedule.

A few intersections are still blocked so crews can make repairs and police are still offering security in those areas.

No one was hurt when the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) train derailed Monday night.

BNSF says 24 train cars were involved, all of which were empty.

The intersections from the North end of Fireman's Park to First Street were closed following the accident.

The railroad is still investigating the cause of the accident, which could take several days.
