Anyone heading down Rt 4 by the tracks in North Berwick may wanna change their routes for a while. At this time a train has struck a dumptruck killing the driver and injured around 10 paasengers At this time multiple agencies working on it I would suspect the road may be closed for a few days [unknown for sure]

Edit to add from my sources a TT dump unit loaded with garbage.

Truck full of trash hit by Downeaster in Maine | wcsh6.com

My condolences to the family of the lost, and prayers to the injured. The speed limit is 55mph on rt 4 south of North Berwick and 40mph about 1000ft from the tracks. Sounds like human error caused the crash. Reports say the train engineer acted valiantly to maintain the safety of his passengers.

Yup know the area well [my hometown] I've also chatted with some of the guys on FD [used to be one of em] and got some stuff but won't put it out as investigation is ongoing [maybe later if they tell me it's OK]
