Ex-RR administrator: Crash sounds like human error
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A former Federal Railroad Administration official says early findings suggest human error led to a head-on collision between two Union Pacific trains in the Oklahoma Panhandle............
The remains of three Union Pacific crew members killed when two trains crashed in a fiery head-on collision in the Oklahoma Panhandle have been recovered, the state's medical examiner's office said Tuesday.......
The Union Pacific trains slammed into each other just east of Goodwell on Sunday morning, triggering a diesel-fueled fireball that appeared to weld the locomotives together. Of the four rail workers on the trains at that time, one conductor managed to jump free before the crash. He suffered only cuts and bruises. The others perished..........
"One train had the right of way," NTSB member Mark Rosekind said Monday night. "We're still getting the data to figure out what was scheduled to happen. ... who was supposed to be where and when."
