Amtrak train hits vehicle on tracks, killing 3

MANSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say an Amtrak train hit a vehicle that was apparently driving on train tracks late Sunday in Massachusetts, killing three people.

Authorities had previously said two died in the accident in Mansfield, which forced Amtrak to temporarily cancel some service to and from Boston and Providence, Rhode Island, on Monday morning. Gregg Miliote, a spokesman for the Bristol County district attorney, confirmed the new details Monday.

Miliote says officials are still working to identify the victims, and that investigators are expected to be at the site most of the day probing the crash.

None of the 180 passengers or crew on the Amtrak train, which was heading to Boston from Washington, were injured.

Mansfield is about 25 miles southwest of Boston.
