Train and semi truck collide in Frenchtown

Posted: Updated:

FRENCHTOWN - Authorities say no one was hurt after a train and semi truck collided in Frenchtown on Tuesday evening.

The Frenchtown Rural Fire District reports that the semi was stuck with its front end across the tracks at the Ducharme crossing behind Benny's.

The train pushed the semi into a Montana Rail Link maintenance building.

The power company has been notified and MRL officials were called to the scene.

Both the Ducharme and Mullan Road crossings were closed and traffic was rerouted.

The locomotive had to be checked before the crossings could be cleared.
