/ 97.3 The Eagle
             Two people are dead and three others are seriously injured after officials say runaway rail cars full of logs crashed into a work crew near Woss. Dave Rushton, the elected regional representative for the tiny community says early reports suggest a crew on the tracks was buried beneath the logs when the cars crashed into them. B-C Emergency Health Services says it transported one person by air ambulance and another by ground after the accident. The train is operated by Western Forest Products and the company says it’s co-operating fully with authorities in the investigation of the derailment.
