Train crash in Marshfield detours traffic

Posted:
MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -- A train crash at the intersection of Central Avenue and Veterans Highway brought traffic in downtown Marshfield to a halt Tuesday.
 
Police say they were dispatched to the crash around 9:30 a.m. They say they had to detour traffic for about 45 minutes.
 
Officers say a train smashed into a trailer that was being hauled by a pick-up truck. 
 
"The driver of a pick-up was towing a trailer that had another pick-up truck on top of the trailer," said Marshfield Police Officer Jody Geurink. "Didn't realize that when he had stopped at a red light, that the trailer was on the tracks."
 
Officials say no one was hurt in the crash. Both the train and the pick-up drove away from the crash scene.
