FESSENDEN, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a southeast bound Canadian Pacific Railway train that collided with a semi-truck near Fessenden did not derail and no cargo was lost.

Patrol Sgt. Tom Herzig says the driver of the truck didn’t see the train coming and his truck was struck in the right rear as it crossed the tracks. The truck came to rest upright in the ditch. No one was injured.

Breanne Feigel is a spokeswoman with Canadian Pacific. She says the train involved in the collision was a “mixed freight” train.

Damages to the semi-truck are estimated at $20,000.

Herzig said as of Tuesday evening the train had been released and was moving again.

The crash remains under investigation.
