Amtrak Train Hits Trailer In Western Bureau County

Posted by wlpo on September 13, 2011

No one was hurt after an Amtrak train clipped a trailer that was on tracks along Route 34 in Neponset.

Emergency crews from Buda and Neponset were called out to the crash just before 8:30 this morning.  The train headed from Quincy to Chicago hit the trailer that was being hauled by a car.  An ambulance was initially called but no one was hurt.

An Amtrak spokesman says the train was delayed for a bit and some equipment was damaged in the crash.
