WISCONSIN (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A head-on crash involving two freight trains has prompted evacuations in a small Wisconsin town.

Authorities say the trains collided in Slinger, near Milwaukee.

Two people suffered minor injuries. At least ten train cars derailed after the impact.

So far, officials say the only hazard is leaking diesel fuel, at least 5,000 gallons of it.

Residents living within a half-mile of the accident scene have been evacuated as a precaution.
