Missed signals to blame for deadly train crash
GOODWELL, Okla.—A collision between two freight trains that claimed the lives of three people may have been caused by missed signals.
Two Union Pacific freight trains hit head-on back in June near the town of Goodwell.
The crash also caused a massive fire on the tracks.
The National Transportation Safety Board announced Tuesday that the eastbound train was going almost 70 miles per hour just before the accident.
It had passed a signal that was warning it to slow down or stop but may have not heeded the warning.
