Default CN collides with Wisconsin & Southern train in Slinger, WI

A southbound CN manifest with 3 locomotives hit WSOR T003 in the interlocking at Slinger, WI on the evening of 7/20/14. The WSOR train had cars occupying the junction (Slinger is not a diamond, almost more like a crossover). What is not known at this point is whether the rear of the WSOR train was fouling the interlocking all along, or if it erroneously entered the interlocking during a shove.

Regardless, the crew of two on the CN train received non-life threatening injuries, so that is fortunate.

Aerial footage of the accident site is available on CNN:
