CHESTER TOWNSHIP , Pa., Oct. 28 (UPI) — Two freight trains crashed head-on Friday in Chester Township, Pa., near Philadelphia, injuring four people, officials said.
Two people were hospitalized.
Both trains are owned by CSX Transportation, which is investigating the crash but offered no comment on why the trains were on the same track. Both trains were moving at the time of the accident, and the two locomotives crashed head-on at about 8:30 a.m.
One train was made up of empty freight cars; the other carried various consumer and industrial products but none are regarded as hazardous, CSX spokesman Rob Doolittle said.
Some fuel was reported leaking from one train, the news website philly.com reported.
