Officials say the collision took place on Route 9, also known as Route 202, in Hampden at about 11 a.m. Thursday.

Fluids were reported to be leaking from both the train and the truck, and traffic was rerouted.

Authorities have called for a medical helicopter and a Jaws of Life to pry open the truck and free the driver.
