(GOODWELL, Okla.) -
Officials are searching for three missing Union Pacific employees after two freight trains collided in the Oklahoma Panhandle.
Union Pacific spokeswoman Raquel Espinoza said the trains crashed Sunday about 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 crew members had jumped from the trains.
Randolph says a blaze that erupted after the collision has been contained, but continues to burn.
She says one firefighter was transported to a hospital for treatment of a heat-related injury.
