Several hurt as train crashes with milk truck

Several people were hurt when a train partly derailed after smashing into a milk tanker in the northeastern Netherlands on Friday, police said. 

“At least one person was taken to hospital, but the exact number of injured and the condition of the wounded is not yet known,” spokesman for the local Groningen crisis team, Cyriel Hamstra said. About 20 people had been on the train at the time of the crash, he added. 

The tanker truck was leaving a farm in Winsum and “was probably driving over an unguarded railway crossing when it was hit by an oncoming train,” Groningen police said
