JEROME, Idaho (AP) - Two train vs. vehicle collisions kept emergency responders busy in southern Idaho on Wednesday.
One person was killed when a train struck a sport utility vehicle at a crossing in south-central Idaho, while the driver of a semi tractor-trailer suffered minor injuries when he apparently pulled in front of a train about 20 miles southeast of Boise.
Jerome County Sheriff Doug McFall tells The Times-News the fatal crash happened Wednesday afternoon along U.S. Highway 93 north of Twin Falls and blocked the highway. No information on the victim was immediately released.
In Ada County, Sheriff's Capt. Scott Johnson says one train was stopped on the tracks and the semi driver likely didn't see a second train passing it on a parallel set of tracks.
There was no immediate word if anyone on the trains was injured.
