TRAIN VERSUS TRUCK

A train has struck a truck in Tyhee. Nobody was injured. 

Tyhee Road between U.S. Highway 91 and Hiline Road in the Tyhee area of north Bannock County was closed for about an hour and a half on Friday afternoon after a train struck a truck pulling an empty trailer, Idaho State Police said.

Nobody was injured during the accident, but the train, which was headed northbound on the tracks, split the trailer in half, state police said. 

State police said the accident occurred at 1:38 p.m., blocking both train travel on the tracks and vehicle travel on Tyhee Road while emergency personnel investigated the crash. The scene was cleared at about 3 p.m.

The driver of the truck, a 22-year-old Blackfoot man, was cited for failure to yield, state police said. The Bannock County Sheriff's Office assisted state police in the investigation.
