ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - An Amtrak train approaching Albuquerque hit an auto hauler stopped on a grade crossing in the South Valley Wednesday morning sending vehicles flying and apparently injuring the locomotive operators.
The crash happened at about 11:00 a.m. on Propesrity Avenue SW at Second Street.
Initial reports from the scene indicate two people, possibly the locomotive crew, were transported to a hospital with unspecified injuries.
According to the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department no serious injuries have been reported. However fire department personnel are checking all crew and passengers on board, a spokesman said.
The auto hauler had several vehicles on its trailer. The train stopped a short distance up the tracks.
KRQE News 13 has a crew on the scene and will update this report as more information becomes available.
