Physics chapter 2-Motion in One Dimension, Physics

An express train, traveling at 36.0 m/s, is accidently sidetracked onto a local train track. The express engineer spots a local train exactly 100 m ahead of the same track and traveling in the same direction. The local engineer is unaware of the situation. The express engineer jams on the brakes and slows the express at a constant rate of 3.00 m/s^2. If the speed of the local train is 11.0 m/s, will the express train be able to stop in time or will there be a collision?
