The city of Panhandle awoke to a thunder-like crash and the roar of a fireball Tuesday morning as two freight trains collided head-on, injuring one man and leaving three others unaccounted for.

.

Two BNSF Railway freight trains were traveling on the same track when they collided about 8:40 a.m. Each train had a conductor and an engineer on board.

.

One man jumped from one of the trains as they approached one another. He was transported to Northwest Texas Hospital by Claude EMS and was in stable condition.

.

Because the fire was still burning Tuesday night, crews had not been able to search the wreckage for the three missing crew members.

.

Unfortunately, we do feel that they may be still trapped in the train at this time, said Sgt. Dan Buesing of the Texas Department of Public Safety. We wont be able to confirm that until the fire is under control… It will be some time until the fire is under control before they can start moving the heavy equipment out to get to those family members that we are trying to confirm.

.

Freight cars and containers were derailed and strewn for about 400 yards from the collision site, Buesing said. As nightfall approached, floodlights were being brought in as efforts to quell the flames and search for the missing crew members was expected to continue well into the night, Buesing said.

We saw it right after it happened, said Virginia Mize who lives near the scene of the wreckage. There was just smoke, cars and people. The conductor or the engineer, he was going over to the ambulance and had blood gushing down his neck and down his back. Mize said she lives extremely close to the accident site.

.

Diesel fuel from the locomotives caught fire upon impact and the black plume of smoke that reached hundreds of feet into the air was visible throughout the day in Amarillo, nearly 30 miles away. Although the blaze was under control, firefighters continued to deal with the burning fuel well into the night.

.

The city of Panhandle went through a precautionary evacuation throughout the day to keep residents from inhaling the smoke.

.

Residents living east of highway 207 were required at times to evacuate as smoke shifted with the winds. The city of Panhandle established evacuation sites at the First United Methodist Church, the court house and the elementary school.

.

Sgt. Buesing said that, although BNSF hazmat crews were on scene and working to fight the fire, there were no hazardous materials known to be on board the trains time.

.

BNSF Hazmat crews are working with local fire departments to get that (fire) contained, Sgt. Buesing said.

.

The Texas Department of Public Safety did not have the trains freight manifest to verify what was being transported, but crews from the Environmental Protection Agency were on scene and testing the air for hazards.
