Chicago-bound Amtrak train hits tractor in Michigan

Posted: Updated:

PARMA, Mich. (AP) - Officials say a Chicago-bound Amtrak train collided with a farm tractor in southern Michigan, delaying the train while authorities investigated the crash.

No injuries were reported following the Friday afternoon collision at a private crossing in the Parma area, about 80 miles west of Detroit.

Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari tells The Associated Press the train was heading from Pontiac and carrying 258 passengers and four crew members.

Jackson County Undersheriff Chris Kuhl tells MLive.com that the tractor was damaged, but the driver wasn't injured in the collision.

The train stopped just west of the crash scene.
