Train Hits Fallen Tree On Metro North Danbury Line

DANBURY, Conn. (AP) _ A Metro-North commuter train has struck a tree that fell onto the tracks near south Norwalk.

Railroad spokeswoman Marjorie Anders says the first train of the morning on the Danbury Branch hit the tree at about 6:20 a.m. Thursday.

Crews were called to clear the tree and the train was able to make it to the Merritt 7 station in Norwalk, where passengers disembarked and boarded another train at about 7:15 a.m.

No one was injured and Anders said the rest of the morning schedule was not affected.

She says the train suffered some minor damage and is being repaired.
