PITTSBURGH — Hazmat crews are converging on a train-tractor trailer crash in southwestern Pennsylvania today after a train struck a truck hauling hydrochloric acid.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the train struck the truck Tuesday morning when the truck driver pulled in front of the train at a marked grade crossing in Centerville, Pa., in rural Washington County. The train included three locomotives and 102 empty coal hoppers.

The newspaper cites a Norfolk Southern representative saying that the train's engineer and conductor were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of injuries. No other injuries have been reported, though as many as 15 nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution.
