AMARILLO, Texas (AP) - A rail line through the Texas Panhandle has been cleared following a three-train wreck that left four crew members hurt.
Fort Worth-based BNSF Railway said Thursday that the line just east of Amarillo has reopened to traffic.
Spokesman Joe Faust said the line reopened just before 11 p.m. Wednesday. Faust also said the four workers injured in the wreck before dawn Wednesday have been treated and released from a hospital.
Investigators are trying to determine how an eastbound BNSF freight train rear-ended a stopped train, then moments later a westbound train crashed into the wreck. The accident derailed as many as 30 cars and left one locomotive on its side.
The BNSF trains were hauling flatbed cars carrying truck trailers. No hazardous materials spilled.
