ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - An Amtrak train has struck a semi-trailer near Ann Arbor, sending a load of kayaks to the ground.

No injuries were reported Saturday in Ann Arbor Township. Some passengers told AnnArbor.com (http://bit.ly/177aLGF) that they didn't know there was a collision around 1 p.m. on the Chicago-bound train.

Washtenaw County sheriff's spokesman Derrick Jackson says the semi couldn't cross a one-lane bridge and was backing up over the tracks when the train split it in two. The driver was able to get out of the cab before the crash.
