Train Collides With Farm Vehicle

Share this post

Authorities say an Amtrak train that left Indianapolis this morning heading for Chicago collided with a farm vehicle hauling at least a-thousand gallons of anhydrous ammonia in White County today, just west of Monon, and just a couple miles north of State Road 16. White County Emergency Management Director Dean Mullens says it's possible there was leak on impact, but the tank is upright and has been stabilized. None of the more than eighty passengers on the train was said to be hurt; officials say the driver of the farm tractor and the train engineer were transported for minor injuries. Mullens says the train passengers were taken to the Monon Fire Department by school bus after the collision, and they have since left by bus for Chicago.
