CHICAGO (WLS) — One person was injured after an Amtrak train bound for Chicago collided with a truck in Maryland Wednesday.

Capitol Limited train 29 was traveling from Washington DC to Chicago when it struck a truck on the tracks in Brunswick around 5:20 p.m., according to Amtrak.

Out of the 142 passengers and crew onboard, no injuries were reported, Amtrak said.

The driver of the passenger truck was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

The train was delayed about an hour while local authorities investigated.

According to the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), trespassing along railroad rights-of-way is the leading cause of rail-related deaths in America, and railroad crossing incidents are the second leading cause of rail-related deaths in America. They also serve as critical reminders about the importance of obeying the law and of exercising extreme caution around railroad tracks and crossings, Amtrak said.
