28 hurt when California train crashes into truck on tracks

A commuter train slammed into a truck stuck on the tracks early Tuesday, sending three rail cars tumbling onto their sides and injuring 28 people in the fiery crash in California. The accident occurred around 5:45 am about 65 miles (105 kilometers) northwest of Los Angeles. Four people, including the train engineer, had critical injuries. The truck driver was found disoriented one or two miles away, said Jason Benitez, an assistant chief of the Oxnard Police Department. The crash occurred at a spot where the tracks cross an avenue just before an intersection. The driver was making a right turn from the avenue onto the cross-street but ended up on the tracks, Benitez said.
