Another Trip Gone Wrong

SOUTH WEBER, Davis County Several cars from a Union Pacific train derailed Wednesday following a collision.

Just before 9:30 a.m., a Union Pacific freight train carrying grain rear-ended another Union Pacific train carrying grain near the mouth of Weber Canyon, according to Aaron Hunt, spokesman for Union Pacific.

"A collision like this is rare for us," Hunt said.

The front locomotive hit the end rail car of the train in front, Hunt said. Three locomotives and five rail cars came off the tracks as a result of the crash. Train lines often contain three to five locomotives, including the locomotive in the front of the train where the crew sits, Hunt said.

 All you've got to do is say, "Hey, Troy".

"A collision like this is rare for us, Our men run 30mph under the speed limit. Most of the time they do WAY under that" Hunt said.

 

Fixed........
