Around 40 people were injured when an Amtrak passenger train collided with a farm truck, on Friday evening, at a rail crossing in northern California, a Reuters report quoted Vernae Graham, an Amtrak spokeswoman as saying.
Graham was further quoted as saying that there were no casualties and all injured persons were released without further hospitalization. She also added that the train continued on its journey, from Oakland to Bakersfield, with most of the original passengers still on board.
There were 204 people on board, including crew members, according to a report on Yahoo.
The collision took place at around 7:15 p.m. local time, near Antioch, which about 30 miles northeast of Oakland.
Graham added that the crossing where the collision took place was a private one that although marked by a railroad crossing sign, was not equipped with warning lights or gates.
Finally, according to the Reuters report, Graham said that although no official word was available on the condition of the truck driver, she understood that he had only suffered relatively minor injuries.
