WASHINGTON (AP) - Virginia Rail Express says a train carrying three crew members hit a dump truck.

The northbound train sideswiped the truck in a CSX work zone just south of L’Enfant Station around 11:30 a.m. Thursday. No passengers were aboard.

VRE says the crew members were taken to a hospital for evaluation. The damage to the train is being assessed.

The 6 p.m. southbound Fredericksburg Line train from Union Station will be cancelled and VRE warns that there could be a delay to all trains traveling between L’Enfant station and the Long Bridge.
