LOGANSPORT -

A freight train has derailed in north central Indiana after striking the trailer of a truck stopped on the tracks.

The engines of the Norfolk Southern train derailed Monday morning along Indiana 25 south of Logansport, about 70 miles north of Indianapolis.

Cass County Sheriff Randy Pryor tells the Pharos-Tribune the train dragged the trailer about 100 feet, and the four engine cars derailed about 2,000 feet from an intersection along the highway.

Forty-seven-year-old truck driver David Jones of Indianapolis told investigators he didn't see the train coming.

There were no major injuries.

The Journal and Courier reports the highway would remain closed north of Delphi until a bent rail was repaired.
