LOS ANGELES — One person was killed and 23 were injured when a logging truck collided with a tourist train in rural West Virginia, officials said. Investigators believe the driver of the logging truck failed to brake at a railroad crossing while driving north Friday on Route 250 in Cheat Bridge, West Va., about 160 miles east of Charleston.
The logging truck hit two of the passenger cars that are part of the Cheat Mountain Salamander, a train that offers tourists fall foliage excursions.
