Authorities say three people were hurt and taken to a hospital after a train hit a truck hauling gravel in southeast Kansas.

Wilson County officials said in a news release that the collision Thursday near Benedict also caused the train to derail, shutting down Kansas 39.

Wilson County Emergency Manager Terry Lyons says eight empty train cars and two engines jumped the tracks. The condition of the injured people wasn’t immediately known.
