AUBURN, Mass. — Though there was plenty of twisted metal, no one was hurt when a train struck a tractor-trailer truck on Southbridge Street in Auburn on Monday evening, police said.
At about 6 p.m., the truck driver had stopped over the the railroad crossing near the entrance of the Polar Beverage facility to wait for traffic when a train came through, striking and heavily damaging the right side of the trailer.
No one was injured, Auburn police Sgt. John Kelleher said.
Auburn police detoured traffic around the crash scene, and officials from the State Police truck team responded.
The trailer had to be off-loaded before it could be moved, Kelleher said.
Police did not provide information on the operator of the truck, which is owned by Orange Transportation Services.
