(Collision under investigation)…It was a Train versus a semi.
It was reported Friday afternoon. Yuma County Sheriff’s responded to the call in Dateland. They report a Peterbilt being driven by 46-year-old Lorenzo Rico Trujillo of Greenfield California.

The driver of the semi was injured, but the injuries were not life threatening. He was flown out of the area for treatment. The conductor of the train was not injured.
