WILBRAHAM, Mass. (AP) - Police are investigating after a freight train struck a van that had apparently been abandoned on the tracks in Wilbraham.

There were no reported injuries when the CSX train struck the white van at about 4:30 a.m. Thursday.

Sgt. Edward Lennon says it does not appear as if anyone was in the van, which sustained heavy damage.

The train was reportedly returned to service.

Police are trying to determine who owns the van and think it may have been stolen.
