Amtrak and truck collide in north Austin

Posted on December 19th, 2011 No Comments

An Amtrak passenger train and a pickup truck collided in Hutto, a city northeast of Austin, Sunday morning injuring the driver.

According to a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper, the train blew its whistle as the conductor saw the truck attempting to cross the tracks. The 44 year-old driver of the truck continued to drive despite the warnings and was ejected from the vehicle when the train hit him.

All 200+ passengers were evacuated from the train as diesel fuel began leaking. The truck driver is currently in critical condition at Round Rock’s Seton Medical Center Williamson. Two passengers in the train were injured, but did not require medical assistance.
