1 dead after Amtrak train hits truck at JBLM

An Amtrak train hit and killed a man in a pickup at Joint Base Lewis-McChord Monday night, according to BNSF Railway spokesman Gus Melonas.

The pickup was on the tracks about 40 yards from the nearest railroad crossing at Solo Point Road when a southbound Amtrak train from Seattle hit it at 6:40 p.m., Melonas said. The railroad was closed in the area until about 10 p.m. he said.

None of the 153 passengers or crew on the 509 train bound for Eugene, Ore., was hurt in the collision, according to Amtrak spokeswoman Vernae Graham.
