CP hi-rail track unit, CP train collide near Chapleau, Ont.
The Transportation Safety Board of Canada says it's deploying a team of investigators to a head-on collision involving a Canadian Pacific hi-rail track unit and a CP train near Chapleau, Ont. Sunday.
There were two people in the hi-rail track unit and two people on the train, said a TSB spokesman, but no one was hurt.
The incident took place around 3:40 p.m. Sunday, March 6, in a remote area, said Eric Collard.
A hi-rail track unit is a vehicle hybrid that looks like a truck which uses the rails and does maintenance.
The Transportation Safety Board makes recommendations so accidents don't re-occur but does not assign blame for civil or criminal purposes.
