Highway 54 Reopened After Train Collision

KSCB News - June 26, 2012 1:00 pm

GUYMON, Okla. (AP) – U.S. Highway 54 southwest from Guymon has

reopened following a head-on collision involving two freight trains

that killed three crewmembers of the trains and sparked a diesel

fire.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Betsy Randolph said Tuesday that

the highway reopened about 10:30 p.m. Monday after being shut down

following the Sunday morning crash between two Union Pacific Trains

near Goodwell.

The burned remains of the three victims have been recovered and

sent to the state Medical Examiner’s office in Oklahoma City. A

fourth crewmember jumped from one of the trains and suffered minor

injuries.

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the

collision.
