Train strikes semi in Perham
A 123-car freight train struck an empty semi trailer that became disconnected from its tractor early Friday in Perham, Police Chief Brian Nelson said.
The accident occurred about 7:18 a.m., within about 20 yards of Perham City Hall. The eastbound train was carrying 17,000 tons of lignite to Superior, Wis.
It's the second train collision in less than a month in Perham.
