KEITHVILLE - Caddo Parish sheriff's deputies say two trains collided south of Shreveport and three crew members were injured.

Deputies say a southbound Union Pacific train on the main track was diverted onto a side track early Monday morning and ran into a parked coal train.

Authorities say the intersection of Old Mansfield Road and Keithville-Springridge Road will be closed for most of day as crews work to cleanup the wreckage.
