HANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say at least 20 passengers suffered minor to moderate injuries when a big rig truck collided with a southbound Amtrak train in the Central Valley in California.

Kings County Assistant Sheriff Dave Putnam says the crash occurred around 12:30 p.m. Monday south of Hanford. He described the injuries as bumps and bruises and possibly broken bones.

Three of the five train cars were pushed off the track.

Putnam estimated the train was carrying between 120 and 150 people.
