PLANT CITY --
An Amtrak train collided with a tractor trailer Tuesday afternoon in Plant City.
According to Plant City Police Sgt. Al Van Duyne, the crash happened at U.S. 92 just east of North Wilder Road.
According to preliminary information, the tractor trailer was delivering tires to an automotive business in the area and was turning into the driveway with the trailer on the tracks.
An Amtrak train then hit the center of the trailer and cut the trailer in half, spilling tires everywhere.
Initially there were no injuries reported to anyone on the train, which was carrying 90 passengers and eight employees. However, three people were later transported to a local hospital. Police say the cause was most likely stress-related.
Police say the driver of the semi was not injured.
