Amtrak train crashes into forklift in Kings County

KINGS COUNTY, Calif. (KFSN) -- An Amtrak train crashed into a forklift in Kings County on Tuesday morning.

The Hanford area Highway Patrol says the forklift was crossing the train tracks on Lansing Avenue near 10th Avenue when it stalled. The driver tried to restart it, but was unable to. He then jumped off of it, and the train hit it.

The train was coming from Bakersfield when the crash happened. Nobody on the train was hurt, and the driver of the tractor wasn't either. The passenger train has since continued to Sacramento.
