Three freight trains collide near Amarillo, TX; four injured

By: | at 12:18 PM | Intermodal  

​The collision involved trains belonging to Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, said company spokesman Joseph Faust.

At least 30 rail cars were derailed, Faust said. It was not immediately clear what cargo the trains were carrying, but he said there was no risk of hazardous materials being spilled.

Two crew members were transported to a hospital with critical injuries, and two others with injuries that were not life-threatening, he said. (Reuters)
