Investigators say the driver of a truck involved in a deadly collision with a train in Yokohama struggled to make a right turn before it entered a rail crossing from a narrow road parallel to the tracks.
The truck driver died and 33 people were injured when the express train crashed into the truck near Kanagawa-shinmachi Station on the Keikyu Line on Thursday.
Police say 32 people are injured after a truck collided with an express passenger train at a railroad crossing in Yokohama, south of Tokyo.
The incident happened at around 11:40 a.m. on Thursday morning. Footage taken shortly after the collision shows heavy black smoke rising from the wreckage. Aerial shots appear to show the remains of a truck beside a train car that's leaning off the rails.
LAKE LEELANAU, Mich. — Five years ago the midsize truck segment was a one-horse race. The Toyota Tacoma reigned supreme, thanks to a sterling reputation for reliability, great residuals and a fiercely loyal fanbase. Then in 2014, the second-generation Chevrolet Colorado burst onto the scene, injecting life into the stagnant segment and racking up nearly half a million sales through 2018. This led to the reintroduction of the Ford Ranger in 2019 and the new Wrangler-based Jeep Gladiator, that brand's first truck in nearly 30 years.
Although we've driven them all extensively, it was time to see which of these midsize trucks is really the best. We gathered them for a few days in the forests of northern Michigan. Six of us — four editors and a pair of video producers — were on hand to rate the trucks and document the whole affair. The goal? To determine the strongest one overall, using our bespoke scoring formula to see how each truck measured up in critical areas. These trucks have a tougher task than their full-size brethren. They need to pack comfort and utility into a stylish form, while providing value relative to the Silverado, Ford F-150 and Ram 1500.
