20+ Injured In FL Train/Truck Wreck


LAKE WORTH, Fla. (AP) _ Over 20 people were injured when a Tri-Rail train hit a garbage truck stuck on the tracks in Palm Beach County.

Capt. Albert Borroto of Palm Beach Fire Rescue tells The Palm Beach Post that none of the 22 victims were seriously injured in the crash Monday morning in Lake Worth.

The truck’s driver escaped the disabled vehicle just before crash.
