No injuries were reported aboard an Amtrak train that collided with a semi truck on Friday afternoon in southwest suburban Wilmington.
Amtrak’s No. 22, en route from San Antonio to Chicago, “came into contact with a semi at a grade crossing near Wilmington,” Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said.
The incident happened about 4:30 p.m. at Route 53 and New River Road.
There were about 203 passengers on the train at the time, but Magliari said no passengers or crew members was injured.
The truck sustained heavy damage, but it was not known if the driver was injured.
