MONAHANS, Texas — Investigators are looking into the cause of a freight train collision on Union Pacific's former Texas & Pacific line in west Texas early Wednesday.

Local media report that a UP train collided with the rear of another that was parked in the west Texas town, piling up at dozens of intermodal containers. The operating crew of the train was removed from the wreckage and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. They were in stable condition at the time of the crash.

The former Texas & Pacific runs between El Paso and Sweetwater, Texas.
