TIOGA, N.D. — An Amtrak train in western North Dakota is operating normally again following a crash earlier this week that left one man dead.

The Williston Herald reports that the crash happened Monday morning east of Tioga when 62-year-old truck driver Marvin Bell attempted to cross the track and collided with an oncoming truck. Bell, of Parshall, was killed and about 30 cars were derailed.

The crash halted operation as officials conducted an investigation and cleanup of the sight. The track was back to full operation by Tuesday night.

BNSF Railway spokeswoman says the train was carrying a variety of freight. She says the company is completing a full investigation of the incident.
