Train collides with semi truck, sending semi into Lake River
RIDGEFIELD, Wash. -- A semi truck carrying vehicles was knocked into Ridgefield's Lake River Tuesday morning after it was struck by a train, the U.S. Coast Guard said.
The crash happened at the Port of Ridgefield and the impact sent the semi down a boat ramp and into the water. No one was hurt.
Ecology officials placed an absorbent boom around the crash site to contain any pollutants, but found less than 5 gallons of diesel fuel had leaked.
The semi was towed from the lake a few hours later without further issues.
Officials have not said what led up to the crash or if there was any damage to the train.
