Excerpt
Excerpt: About 2:15 a.m., July 2, 1997, westbound Union Pacific Railroad (UP) freight train MKSNP-01, operating on a siding track, proceeded past a wayside stop signal at the end of the siding and collided with the side of eastbound UP freight train ZSEME-29, which was operating on a mainline track on the UP railroad near Delia, Kansas. The MKSNP-01 train engineer was killed, and the MKSNP-01 train conductor sustained minor injuries. Based on its investigation findings, the National Transportation Safety Board determined that the engineer of the striking train probably fell asleep sometime after his train entered the siding. When the engineer of MKSNP-01 failed to dim his train?s headlight, the operating crew of train ZSEME-29 responded by flashing their train?s headlight and repeatedly attempting to contact him by radio. However, he did not respond at all to repeated radio calls from the oncoming train?s crew and did not respond timely to the flashing headlight beam. He possibly awoke upon hearing the eastbound train?s horn sounding and dimmed his train lights and extinguished his ditch lights in reaction to meeting an oncoming train, but was either not sufficiently alert or too startled or disoriented to realize that he needed to apply the brakes.
