JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- Two trains collided at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens Saturday.
A spokeswoman for the zoo says the collision happened around 3 Saturday afternoon. We're told one train had rounded a corner and was having a problem with its hydraulic system. It wasn't getting traction so the operator stopped it to see what was going on. The spokeswoman says the second train didn't see the stopped train and hit it from behind.
She says passengers on board did sustain some minor injuries, but fire and rescue wasn't called. Some of the passengers were children. She says both trains are back up and running.
Action News did talk with one witness who was upset at how the zoo handled the crash, saying they should have called in an ambulance. Zoo officials tell us, they are aware of the complaints, but say they acted as quickly as possible to make sure everyone was ok.
