According to an article in the Northwest Indiana Times, 14 people were injured when an Amtrak train headed for Chicago collided with a semi-truck. The collision, which occurred in White County, happened at about 8:20a.m. Tuesday, October 28th. White County Sherriff Pat Shafer told The Associated Press that the people injured were taken to local hospitals, but that he wasn’t sure of the severity of the injuries. However, Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said “No one aboard the Hoosier State line suffered serious or life-threatening injuries in the collision.” It appears that the 18-wheeler stopped in the path of the Amtrack train for unknown reasons. The train was unable to avoid the collision, and split the trailer in half. Apparently no one associated with the big rig was hurt, and of the 56 passengers aboard the Amtrak train only 14 complained of injuries.
