CROCKETT — No one was injured Wednesday when an Amtrak Capitol Corridor train with 224 passengers on board slammed into an unoccupied car, an Amtrak official said.
The crash occurred at 7:07 p.m. near the intersection of Loring and Rolph avenues. The train, which was headed from Sacramento to San Jose, was on its way again at 8:57 p.m., said Amtrak spokeswoman Vernae Graham.
A nearby train headed in the opposite direction was delayed for a similar length of time as the car was removed from the tracks, Graham said. Three other trains were delayed for shorter periods.
No further information was available late Wednesday.
