OAKLAND—(ENEWSPF)—June 24, 2011. At about 11:20 a.m. PDT time, a semi tractor-trailer rig drove into the side of an Amtrak train at a public railroad crossing east of Reno, Nev. There are reports of injuries to Amtrak passengers and crew. At the time, there were approximately 204 passengers and 14 crew members aboard Train 5, the westbound California Zephyr, enroute from Chicago to Emeryville, Calif.

Amtrak managers and representatives of Union Pacific, the track owner, are enroute to the scene, along with emergency responders.

We are saddened by any injury and appreciate the emergency response by local and state agencies. We ask the news media to be respectful of our customers, our employees and their families.
