A 20-year old Larimore (ND) man is recovering from injuries after crashing his car into an Amtrak train east of Devils Lake this morning. The North Dakota Highway Patrol says Ryan Larson hit the train at the rear of the lead locomotive shortly before 6:30 a-m. The impact sent the vehicle into the ditch where it overturned. Larson was transported to Mercy Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. No Amtrak passengers or crew were injured. The train sustained moderate damage -but did not derail. The accident scene was allocated six miles east of Devils Lake and two-and-a-half miles north of U-S Highway 2.
