EDGERTON, Ind. (WPTA21) - First responders are cleaning up a wreck involving a semi and a train for the second day in a row at the same intersection.

On Tuesday, first responders were called to the intersection of S. State Line Road and Railroad Street at the Indiana and Ohio state line.

A semi hauling another semi got stuck on the tracks, and a Norfolk Southern train slammed the cab. No one was hurt in that crash.

On Wednesday, virtually the same thing happened.

A trucker told ABC21 that because US 24 is still closed due to a crash, semis are using the back roads as a detour.

Just like Tuesday's crash, this semi got caught on the tracks when they were trying to cross.

Police said the stop arms came down on the truck, and the train hit the back part of the semi leaving the cab unharmed.

No injuries were reported.
