Trains collide in Caddo Parish, 4 injured

Posted: Updated:

KEITHVILLE, La. (AP) - Caddo Parish sheriff's deputies say two trains collided south of Shreveport Monday, derailing several cars and injuring four crew members.
    
Sheriff's office spokeswoman Cindy Chadwick says one crew member was in stable condition at University Hospital and the others had minor injuries.
    
She says a southbound Union Pacific train on the main track was diverted onto a side track early Monday and ran into a parked coal train owned by Burlington Northern Santa Fe.
    
Chadwick says one Union Pacific container car broke open. She says it held polyurethane insulation pellets, which are non-toxic.
    
The intersection of Old Mansfield Road and Keithville-Springridge Road reopened Monday afternoon after crews cleaned up the wreckage.
