NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - Two Union Pacific Railroad workers have been injured in a crash at the railroad’s Bailey Yard in North Platte.

Fire and rescue workers say the two men were injured when the company pickup they were in collided with a railcar in the yard shortly after 11 a.m. Friday.

Union Pacific spokesman Mark Davis tells the North Platte Telegraph that both men were taken to a local hospital with unknown injuries and that the cause of the collision is still under investigation.

Fire Capt. T.J. Williams tells North Platte television station KNOP that rescue workers had to remove the top of the pickup to pull the two men from it.
