33 injured after train rams truck in Germany

BERLIN — Police say a train has collided with a truck at a railway crossing in southwestern Germany, leaving 33 people injured — four of them seriously.

The accident happened early today at Talhausen, south of Stuttgart. A police statement said that the flatbed truck, which was carrying a dumpster, got stuck on the crossing for reasons that remain unclear.

The train driver braked sharply but was unable to avoid the truck, which was pushed about 165 feet along the track.

The truck driver and a passenger were lightly injured. Thirty-one people aboard the train were also hurt.
