A train and a dump truck collided in Louisiana, out in Tangipahoa Parish, and a highway had to be closed down as a result. There were roughly 200 people on the train and just one man in the dump truck. That driver was injured and emergency crews had to take him to a nearby hospital.
The fire chief for Tangipahoa Fire District #1 said that they had multiple fires at the crash site. One involved the dump truck, which was apparently trying to cross the tracks when it was hit. Another flash fire involved the diesel fuel on the train. Crews worked hard and were able to get both of those fires out so that the site was secure.
