Three Union Pacific employees are missing and feared dead after two freight trains collided head-on and exploded Sunday near Goodwell, Oklahoma.
The conductor and the rest of the crew were not hurt. "He´s shaken up about the situation, and we are working to make sure that he receives any care that he needs," Union Pacific regional spokeswoman Raquel Espinoza said.
Local firefighters were still trying to extinguish the raging fire. "It´s still burning. I´m afraid we´re going to be here for a while," explained Texas County Emergency Management Director Harold Tyson.
