2 Railroad Workers Killed in Train Crash

November 16, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Cleanup crews cleared the wreckage of two freight trains as investigators tried to determine the cause of the head-on crash near Detroit that killed two railroad workers and injured two others.

The Canadian National trains collided in a marshy, wooded area of Oakland County, authorities said. Two schools closed and some residents were evacuated until authorities determined no hazardous materials had leaked.

The wreck occurred while one train moved on the main line to its destination, Flint. The other train, headed for Detroit, was on a side track. Investigators did not say whether that train was moving when the wreck occurred.
