 The Two trains collided in southeastern
Wisconsin on Sunday night, causing 5,000 gallons of
diesel to spill, a fire official said.


Three engines and 10 rail cars derailed at a point
where the tracks crossed, Slinger Fire Department
Chief Rick Hanke said.

Residents within a half-mile radius were evacuated
due to concerns over the flammability of the diesel
and contamination from the spill, Hanke said.

More
than 100 homes are in the evacuation zone.

A conductor and an engineer suffered injuries that
are not life-threatening, the fire chief said.

The crash involved cars carrying sand and lumber.
They came from CN and Wisconsin & Southern
railroads.

Slinger is about 30 miles northwest of Milwaukee.
