TriMet: WES hits semi-truck but afternoon commute OK

TriMet reports that a WES train collided with a semi-truck at the Tonquin Road crossing Tuesday morning.

No one was injured but the last two morning WES trips were disrupted. TriMet does not expect the accident to affect afternoon trips, however.

According to TriMet, all the crossing gates and safety features at the crossing worked appropriate. The train received a little damage.
