CALGARY, Alberta — Transportation Safety Board of Canada investigators are looking into the reason two Canadian Pacific trains collided in British Columbia on Sunday morning.

A CP spokesman says that the lead locomotive of an eastbound potash train "made contact" with the rear of a westbound intermodal train near Beavermouth, approximately 30 miles west of Golden, B.C., about 3:30 a.m. Mountain time on Sept. 6. The resulting derailment put at least one CP locomotive and another locomotive on their sides, according to a TSB photo.

CP says train traffic resumed through the area at 6:10 p.m. Mountain time on Sunday.
