Train hits truck near River Road

River Road was closed part of Friday as a result of a truck-train crash on a private crossing near Armstrong Road.

The truck apparently stalled on the tracks while a westbound CP coal train was approaching. The cab ended up on one side of the tracks, while the trailer landed in the ditch on the other side.

The road was closed between Armstrong and 240 Street for most of the morning. There were no injuries.
