At least two people are dead after a semi-trailer smashed into an Amtrak train en route from Chicago to Emeryville, Calif., today. The Chicago Tribune reports that the truck driver and at least one passenger were killed; another 20 or so were injured in the fiery crash. The truck apparently plowed into the train at a crossing on US 50. A Nevada Highway Patrol trooper says the crossing gates were working properly. A total of 218 people were on board.
