Police say the crash happened Wednesday night at a railroad crossing in Wayne as the truck tried to go around crossing gates that were down. Amtrak says the train was heading to Pontiac, Michigan, from Chicago and had 90 people aboard. No injuries were reported to passengers or crew on the train.

WWJ-AM reports a man and woman died in the crash. Their names weren't immediately released.

Amtrak says the train was delayed for nearly three hours before it continued to its destination. The crash is under investigation by police.
