    BNSF Railway spokesman Joe Faust said each train was carrying two crew members. He says one man jumped before the trains collided and is being treated at a hospital. The extent of his injuries is unknown.

    It's not clear how fast the trains were traveling when they collided, but the speed limit in that area is 70 mph, Faust said. It also wasn't clear why the trains were on the same track.

    Billy Brown, a farmer who lives in the area, told the Associated Press that he saw a fireball erupt after the collision.

    "I don't know how anyone survived," Brown said. "It's terrible. I've seen a number of train wrecks but I've never seen one like this."

    @Billy Brown is a farmer?

    That kind of does make sense.
