A third person has succumbed to injuries following a train derailment Thursday morning in the community of Woss, which is located between Port McNeill and Campbell River.
Two men remain in hospital.
The train was in a yard for reloading when it rolled down the tracks and collided with a work crew that was doing track maintenance.
The collision caused a whole load of logs on the Western Forest Products train to come down, pinning several individuals under the logs at the scene.
