(Updated 1:50 p.m.) A freight train struck a tractor-trailer in Springfield this afternoon (Thursday), sending the truck driver to the hospital with minor injuries, the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department said.
The intersection is adjacent to train tracks that lead to the Virginia Railway Express’ Backlick Road station.
The train did not have any passengers, and there were no traffic impacts, FCFRD spokesperson William Delaney told FFXnow.
NBC4, which captured the scene by helicopter, reports that the train had 25 cars and was backing up when it knocked the truck on its side.
