JACKSON, Mich., Feb. 1 (UPI) -- Amtrak says a passenger train heading from Pontiac, Mich., to Chicago derailed Wednesday morning after colliding with a tractor-trailer at a level crossing.
The crash occurred west of Detroit between Ann Arbor and Jackson. Amtrak's Wolverine Service Train 351 was carrying 68 passengers and had six cars and two locomotives.
One locomotive tipped over, Amtrak said, and two cars left the tracks. No serious injuries were reported, although several people were taken to a hospital for examination.
The truck driver was also taken to a hospital, The Detroit News reported.
Rail service was suspended on the line with passengers being transferred to buses between Jackson and Ann Arbor. Amtrak said it hoped to get trains running again by Thursday.
The Blackman-Leoni Township Public Safety Department is heading the investigation into the crash. The level crossing where it occurred is equipped with signal lights, Amtrak said. The tracks are owned and maintained by Norfolk Southern Railway.
