      Semi-truck and train crash

      A semi-truck and train crashed in Kalkaska County.

      The Kalkaska County Sheriff's Office tells 7&4 News a logging truck did not hear or see the train at the railroad crossing in Boardman Township Friday afternoon causing a crash.

      It happened at the intersection of South Boardman Rd. and Main Street.

      The driver of the semi was taken to Kalkaska Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

      The train, which has Great Lakes Central written on the side, was derailed. The semi-truck is from Mid-Michigan Logging out of Lake City. It was carrying a bed full of wood chips when the crash took place. The bed of the truck is still on the tracks at this time.

      Deputies at the scene tell 7&4's Lauren Amstutz they have never seen anything like this crash. A homeowner nearby said the crash shook her home.

      The Kalkaska County Sheriff says South Boardman and Main Street will be shut down for several days for the massive cleanup.
