A train collided with a dump truck Monday morning, killing one person and injuring another.
A Metra Milwaukee District North Line train hit the truck at a private intersection in Illinois.
Metra announced that a passenger on the train was injured and the truck driver was killed, reports CBS News.
The five-axle dump truck was wrecked and the train’s control car derailed,
Inbound and outbound train service ceased immediately after the crash, but has since resumed.
The train was back on the tracks and moving at 4.30am.
In May, another Metra railroad train and an articulated lorry collided.
The accident created a huge fireball on the train tracks near the Clarendon Hills neighborhood of Chicago.
Metra said a female passenger on the train was killed in the collision, ABC reports.
Four others on board the train suffered minor injuries, including two passengers, a conductor and an engineer, according to the outlet.
“All of us at Metra and BNSF Railway are devastated by this death and we will be working hand in hand with the NTSB to find out what happened,” Metra told the outlet.
Shocking footage showed thick black smoke billowing from the crash site.
The impact caused the truck to overturn and burst into flames.
The train also appeared to have sustained damage, with several windows shattered.
Firefighters said the impact also caused power lines above the truck to catch fire.
