Amtrak Passenger Train Destroys Semi-Truck in Wenatchee
An Amtrak train carrying 161 passengers crashed into a semi last night, destroying the semi and causing the truck to spill 23,000 pounds of calcium nitrate fertilizer.
According to the Washington State Patrol the the truck attempted to pass through an uncontrolled railroad crossing when the trailer was sliced-in-half by the train just after 9 p.m. Wednesday. The Good news there were NO injuries!
Can you imagine being a passenger on the train? Wow very scary!
