1 dead, 1 injured after train strikes vehicle near Sabin, Minn.

SABIN, Minn. – One person was killed and another was airlifted to a Fargo hospital this afternoon following a train/vehicle crash just south of Sabin.

According to Clay County Sheriff Bill Bergquist:

The incident was reported about 1:40 p.m. after a vehicle traveling on Clay County Road 67 collided with a train at a railroad crossing just south of Sabin.

One person was dead at the scene and another was airlifted to Sanford Health in Fargo.

Bergquist said the Otter Tail Valley Railroad train involved consisted of a small number of train engines linked together.

He said the identities of the two people involved are known, but their identities were being withheld pending notification of family.

He said it appeared they were traveling in an SUV.

The train crossing at that location is marked by signs, but there are no crossing arms at the intersection, Bergquist said.
