WENDOVER, Wyo. – Two BNSF Railway coal trains derailed in a remote Wyoming canyon on Monday, injuring two people and spilling fuel into a nearby river.

The Star Tribune reports that a loaded coal train rear ended another train north of Wendover. Three locomotives and four cars derailed as a result of the incident. The crew aboard one train suffered non-life threatening injuries.

BNSF is working with the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality to remove the fuel from the river.

Railroad officials tell the newspaper that the incident remains under investigation.
