One dead man after a grain train and tanker truck was circulated north on Tuesday evening Sherwood Park, a policeman said.

"The crash was right on their own paths," said RCMP Cpl. Ken Shamblaw. "(The train) hit the passenger side of the tractor unit cab and pulled the 50 meter east tractor down the road."

The accident happened just after 1:30 p.m. north of Highway 16 on Road Road 232.

The driver of the tanker's two-tank fuel truck said, Shamblaw said.

"Fortunately, the tankers were empty. The main tanker was damaged but the same breakdown from the diesel tank was on the tractor tray itself," he said.

The grain train, which was also empty, traveled from Edmonton to Saskatoon, CN spokesman Jonathan Abecassis said.

"Tank fuel tank content has been included after shooting after the disaster and there is no danger to the public," he said in a statement.

Cross-operated crossing and operational gates and lights operated at the time of a & # 39; war, he also said.

CN Police assisted the RCMP with their investigation, Abecassis said.

The police said they are working to inform the driver's relationship.

"The routes have been cleared now and we hope that within the half hour they will be able to start normal transport," said Shamblaw.
