GOODWELL - Three people were missing Sunday after two Union Pacific freight trains collided east of Goodwell in the Oklahoma Panhandle, authorities said.
Two engineers and one conductor were unaccounted for after the collision, Union Pacific Railroad spokeswoman Raquel Espinoza said.
The conductor of the westbound train jumped from the train before the crash, she said.
"He did not require any medical treatment, but is understandably pretty shaken up," Espinoza said.
