STEVENS POINT (WAOW) -

An accident involving a train and semi-truck happened on Prairie Street in Stevens Point late Saturday night.

A vehicle traveling northbound over the tracks was struck by a westbound train. 

After the initial impact the train continued west - bringing the vehicle with it. 

As a result of the crash, many in the Stevens Point area were without power.  According to Wisconsin Public Service, all power has since been restored.
