GOODWELL, Okla. (AP) – Authorities have reopened part of U.S.

Highway 54 in the Oklahoma Panhandle that was closed after two

trains collided near Goodwell.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper Betsy Randolph says traffic is

being routed into the eastbound lane of U.S. 54, which had been

closed in both directions between Guymon and Texhoma.

Randolph says the westbound lane will remain closed until

further notice.

She says drivers are encouraged to pay attention to the traffic

and not the train collision to avoid any possible accidents.

Three crewmembers are missing after the two Union Pacific

freight trains collided. A conductor of one of the trains survived.
