Becker County Sheriff: Charges Possible in Train-Truck Collision

The Becker County Sheriff says prosecutors will review the investigation into last week’s train and propane tanker crash in Callaway for possible criminal charges. 

According to KSTP-TV, Sheriff Todd Glander says authorities are looking into the actions of the truck driver. 

The crash happened Thursday.  Fire from the the propane truck and its proximity to a propane tank prompted an evacuation of around 230 residents in Callaway.  They were allowed to return home on Friday. 

Rail officials say they have video that shows the truck didn’t stop for the train. 

Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton visited Callaway on Saturday and spoke about statewide rail safety. 

Callaway is about 50 miles east of Fargo, North Dakota.
