Freight Trains Collide Near Fargo

A freight train carrying crude oil smashed into a derailed grain train, causing an explosion of flames that leapt more than 100 feet into the air near Fargo, North Dakota, on Monday. The fireball full engulfed 10 cars of the oil train, and blackened the sky, visible up to 25 miles away. Emergency crews responded to the explosion, but there were no reported injuries.
