Authorities Still Searching For Train Wreck Victims

KSCB News - June 25, 2012 10:49 am

Authorities are searching near the

railroad tracks where two Union Pacific freight trains collided in

the Oklahoma Panhandle to see if several missing crewmembers might

have escaped injury.

Union Pacific spokeswoman Raquel Espinoza said the trains

crashed Sunday around 10:08 a.m. Sunday near Goodwell. She said a

two-person crew was aboard each train, and officials can’t account

for two engineers and a conductor.

The other conductor appeared to be uninjured.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper Betsy Randolph says law officers

were walking along either side of the tracks to see if the missing

crewmembers had jump from the trains.

Randolph says a blaze that erupted after the collision has been

contained, but continues to burn.

She says a firefighter was transported to a hospital for

treatment of a heat-related injury.
