      SLINGER (AP) - Two crew members injured when two trains collided in a southeastern Wisconsin village are doing better.Canadian National Railway spokesman Patrick Waldron says the engineer and conductor have been released from a local hospital after they were treated for injuries.A total of three engines and ten railcars derailed when the Canadian National and Southern & Wisconsin trains hit in the Washington County community of Slinger Sunday night.The derailment caused a locomotive to spill some 5,000 gallons of diesel fuel, which prompted authorities to order a temporary evacuation of the neighborhood.Crews are working to clear the derailed train.
