Thackerville, Okla. (AP) _ Amtrak's Heartland Flyer collided with a vehicle in southern Oklahoma near the Texas border.

Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari says the train hit the vehicle near Thackerville about 11:15 a.m. Thursday on its route from Oklahoma City to Fort Worth, Texas. Thackerville is about five miles north of the Oklahoma-Texas border.

Magliari says no injuries were reported.  He says the train was carrying about 90 people and its scheduled arrival in Fort Worth was expected be delayed by about one hour.  He says that delay was not expected to delay the return trip to Oklahoma City later in the day.
