Train Hits Semi-Trailer Truck in Eastern Illinois
CATLIN, Ill. (AP)--The diver of a semi-trailer truck has walked away without serious injury after his vehicle collided with a freight train in eastern Illinois.

The News-Gazette in Champaign reports that the accident happened Friday in the small town of Catlin, several miles southwest of Danville.

The newspaper reported that the truck's cab had just cleared the tracks, but that the train appeared to have broadsided the semi's empty trailer.

The impact pushed the trailer about 100 feet west of the crossing and left a gaping hole in its side.

Police and Norfolk Southern railroad officials are investigating.
