Train from Seattle to Chicago Crashes into Bulldozer

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, Wash. - Amtrack says a train headed from Seattle to Chicago crashed into a bulldozer in North Dakota, killing the bulldozer driver.

Authorities say the 45-year-old man from Williston had been crossing the railroad tracks around 6:30 Monday night on a private construction road when the train hit him. He later died in the hospital.

Two engineers onboard the train suffered minor injuries, but none of the 300 passengers were hurt. 

Amtrack says the train stayed on the track, except for the front wheels of the front locomotive. 

Passengers had to wait about 7 hours on the train until a new one showed up to continue their trip to Chicago.
