Train, semi collide at Luna Pier crossing

LUNA PIER, Mich. - A train and a tractor-trailer collided yesterday at a grade crossing just west of here, but no serious injuries were reported.

A southbound Norfolk Southern train hauling automobiles from Detroit to Gibson, Ind., struck the truck's trailer at Luna Pier Road about 12:20 p.m., railroad spokesman Rudy Husband said.

The train remained at the scene until shortly after 4 p.m., he said.

No one aboard the train was hurt; the truck driver had minor injuries, authorities said.

No other information was available from Erie Township police, which is handling the incident.
