GREAT FALLS, Mont. — Two unidentified BNSF crewmembers – a conductor and engineer — were injured near here July 19 when their 110-car train, with three locomotives, ran into the rear of a stationary and unoccupied maintenance train, reports the Associated Press.

The injuries were said not to be life-threatening. The freight train was enroute from Laurel to Shelby, and 13 of the maintenance-train cars derailed.
