In Texas, near the city of Cameron, a truck collided with a train carrying oil products. A powerful explosion erupted, the world media reported.

As a result of the accident, at least five cars with oil products derailed. A column of flame and smoke was visible at a distance of several kilometers. By some miracle, the truck driver survived. People from nearby houses are being evacuated. Authorities are asked to avoid the scene. The fire continues to be extinguished.

Let’s note that the residents of Texas have had a hard time in recent days. Unprecedented frosts took the lives of several dozen people. More than four million people were left without electricity. U.S. President Joe Biden declared the state a large-scale natural disaster zone. And all of this is happening against the backdrop of nationwide mourning in the U.S., declared due to the death of half a million people from the coronavirus.
