2 (19) vs semi in Texas
Author: NPRocky

Amtrak,s eastbound Sunset Limited, train 2, which left Los Angeles Sunday nighi, is about to leave Missouri CIty, Texas just West of Houston after its lead engine (84) was broadsided by a semi about 3 hours ago. The impact dislodged 84's air tank. Union Pacific sent a mechanical team, which removed the air tank from under the engine and apparently borrowed three engines led by UP 8355 to remove the disabled 84. We just left with our second engine (2) handling the train. Only injury was the semi driver, apparently not seriously.

“I did not know they really operated trains on those tracks. I have never seen a train there before.”

Glad the truck driver wasn't seriously hurt, but I hope this incident causes some serious damage to his/her CDL.
