CALLAWAY, MN – What happens when a freight train meets a propane truck? The answer is you get to see hundreds of people skedaddle.

That’s what happened in Callaway, MN (pop. 234), when a Canadian Pacific Railways train hit a truck hauling 10,000 gallons of propane as it tried to cross the tracks.

All the residents had to leave as fire fighters from 15 departments spent several hours trying to keep things under control.

Canadian Pacific said 11 empty cars and a locomotive of the 82-car train derailed. Authorities say no one was seriously injured.

All the folks of Callaway got to back after about 24 hours with lots of stories about how they survived the hot time in their home town last night.
