Vehicle Accident in USA on June 28 2016 04:11 PM (UTC).
NewsChannel 10 has just confirmed at least one victim of this crash has been taken to Northwest Texas Hospital in Amarillo. We do know the patient is in stable condition. At this time, emergency officials are staging rescue efforts at the Carson County AG barn which is located on the southeast side of town. A fiery crash erupted when two trains met head-on Tuesday morning. Carson County law enforcement and rescue officials have not reported any injuries, but hospitals in Amarillo - about 30 minutes away - are operating on high alert as a precaution. Roads are still open near the crash, but drivers are advised to avoid the area 5 miles east of Panhandle just off Highway 60. At least one of the trains involved is from BNSF, the second-largest railway company in the country behind Union Pacific. The last BNSF accident involving a collision with another train was in December 2013 in Keithville, LA. Two locomotives and 11 cars from the train derailed when it met head-on with a Union Pacific train. Three front locomotives and one car from the UP train derailed. The likely cause of the 2013 accident was the BNSF conductor's improper positioning for a switch onto a side track, according to the National Transportation Safety Board investigation.
