An Amtrak train carrying 164 people plowed through a trailer carrying foam blocks bound for the docks at Felida Moorage on Wednesday afternoon. No injuries were reported. Clark County Fire District 6 spokesman David Shmitke said the tractor-trailer driver hauling the foam blocks had stopped before the crossing, close to the end of Northwest 122nd Street, to make sure his two-trailer payload could make it over the crossing without bottoming out. Still, Shmitke said, the driver bottomed out, leaving one of the trailers stuck on the tracks while a train was coming, at around 2:45 p.m.
