Five people were critically injured when a freight train and a passenger train collided in northwest Arkansas on Thursday. Two dozen other passengers also were hurt.

Reuters reported the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management as saying there have been no fatalities in the crash that took place near Winslow, about 130 miles northwest of Little Rock.

"Two engines and four cars were damaged in the collision. About 300 gallons of diesel was released," said Rick Fahr, a spokesman for the agency.

Two medical evacuation helicopters were dispatched to the scene to transport the injured, he said.
