Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - The Price County Sheriff's office is investigating a collision between a freight train and a liquid petroleum gas truck Saturday morning.

According to authorities, the crash occurred just before 11 AM at a railroad crossing on the North River Road, in Knox.

A Wisconsin Central Train hit, and overturned, the truck at the crossing.

A damaged valve on the back of the truck allowed a small amount of liquid petroleum to leak from the tank.

Multiple agencies responded to the scene.

The accident is still under investigation.
