An Amtrak passenger train has collided with a truck in North Carolina, toppling the engine on its side and causing several injuries.
Halifax County Sheriff Wes Tripp told The Daily Herald of Roanoke Rapids that the accident occurred around noon Monday.
Tripp didn’t say exactly how many people were hurt. But he says those who were hurt had injuries that didn’t appear to be life-threatening.
The sheriff says the engine was on its side. The car directly behind the engine was derailed, and a third car was partially derailed.
There was no word on the condition of the truck’s driver.
The Amtrak train was the Carolinian, which runs between Charlotte, North Carolina, and New York each day.
