(KMOV) – An eastbound Metro train rammed into a truck sitting on the tracks in Pagedale Wednesday evening at the North Market crossing, just north of the St. Charles Rock Road Metro Link station.

The driver of the tow truck left on the tracks says his truck was stalled. He says he was on the tracks a couple of minutes when he saw the train approaching. At that point, he got out and ran for his life.  

Officials report 8-9 people were hurt, but none of those injuries were serious. Those injured have been taken to an area hospital.

Witnesses say other passengers seemed okay, and some have been able to walk to nearby stations where buses picked them up and are transporting them where they need to go.
