(AP)--An explosion caused by a locomotive train crash killed two people and sent a third victim to a Wichita hospital with third-degree burns.
The accident yesterday involved a train that slammed into a propane tanker in north-central Oklahoma as it traveled from Wichita to Fort Worth, Texas.
Two people aboard the Union Pacific train were killed.
The injured truck driver was flown by medical helicopter to Via Christi Regional Medical Center-St. Francis in Wichita with burns over at least 50 percent of his body.
Union Pacific spokeswoman Raquel Espinoza-Williams says the truck was on the train tracks when the locomotive slammed into it.
Emergency management officials say the truck driver is believed to have filled up the tanker just before the accident.
They say the massive explosion blew part of the tanker a quarter- to a half-mile away.
