One of the five people injured in last week's train crash near Two Harbors remains hospitalized in Duluth.

A hospital spokesperson says engineer Scott Schindell is in good condition at Essentia Health - St. Mary's Medical Center.

A United Transportation Union report says the other four men, conductor and engineer trainee William Kevin Weaver, conductor Michael Anderson, conductor Miles Reimer and engineer Dan Murphy were treated and have been released.

The two Canadian National trains collided head-on 14 miles outside Two Harbors Thursday afternoon.

A CN spokesperson said all six engines derailed along with several empty cars and full taconite cars.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
