WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) — The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office says a train hit a tractor-trailer that was crossing the tracks when the flashing signals were operating. No one was injured.

Officials say it happened about 11 a.m. Monday on Hahn Road on Westminster. Authorities say the 15-car Maryland Midland Railroad train struck the rear of the trailer driven by Thomas Taylor, of Biglerville, Pa.

The Carroll County Times reports that the locomotive crushed the back of the nearly empty container and pushed it from the tracks.

Taylor, 63, has been charged with negligent driving and failing to stop at a railroad crossing.
