An Amtrak passenger train hit a tractor-trailer that stalled on railroad tracks in North Carolina, toppling the engine on its side and causing several injuries.

Halifax County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Bruce Temple said the accident happened around noon in the town of Halifax.


The first two cars of the train derailed after the collision, Temple said. The North Carolina Department of Transportation said in a news release that the other car that derailed was a baggage car.

Several people were hurt, though the transportation agency said the injuries were minor. The agency also said no deaths were reported.

It was not immediately clear how many people may have been hurt.

Sheriff's Major Scott Hall said from the crash scene that some passengers were taken to a local hospital by ambulance, but others were able to climb aboard a shuttle bus to be taken for examination.


The Amtrak train was the Carolinian, which runs between Charlotte, North Carolina, and New York each day. It was headed north to New York City at the time of the crash.
