Hearing on Goodwell train collision begins

Posted: Updated:

Goodwell, OK -  Federal officials have opened a hearing on a train collision that happened in Goodwell, Oklahoma last year.

Three Union Pacific workers were killed in June 2012 when two trains collided.

The NTSB is now seeking answers to the cause of the crash.

Investigators say the crew of the eastbound train did not take proper action to stop for the passing westbound train.

One investigator also says they have evidence the eastbound engineer's eyesight was failing.
