In Western Oklahoma, Union Pacific hopes to have a railroad line reopened after one of their trains collided with a semi-truck.

It happened in the Oklahoma panhandle near the community of Guymon. Three locomotives and 16 cars were thrown from the track after it tore up about 400 feet of track. No serious injuries are reported.

Several new cars caught fire when diesel fuel on the locomotives ignited.
