At least 40 hurt in Amtrak-big rig crash in California
HANFORD, Calif. (MCT) — An Amtrak train bound for Bakersfield collided Monday with a big rig at a rural crossing in Kings County, Calif., injuring at least 40 passengers and stranding scores more in an alfalfa field south of Hanford.
The force of the collision knocked two double-deck cars and the engine that was pushing them off their tracks, leaving passengers to grip tables or seats as the cars toppled. The train, the San Joaquin 712 with four cars, was carrying 169 passengers, according to Amtrak.
