A northbound Amtrak train collided with an oversized truck carrying an electrical building when the truck got stuck on the tracks at the intersection of U.S. 301 and N.C. 903 in Halifax, N.C., on March 9. Over 200 passengers were on the train bound for New York. Some were injured but N.C. Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Jeff Gordon said none of the injuries were life-threatening. The upside-down trailer with the “Oversize Load” sign is the back end of the truck that was hit.
