STAMFORD, Conn. -- A Metro-North train — running without passengers on the New Canaan branch — struck a city plow truck Sunday morning at the crossing on Riverbend Drive in Stamford, according to the Connecticut Post.

The driver of the truck, which was stuck on the tracks, was able to get out before it was hit and no on the train was injured, said the Connecticut Post.

The empty train had been sent out to make sure the rails were clear before Metro-North service resumed after 18 hours due to the snowstorm, added the Connecticut Post.

About 14 inches of snow fell in Stamford.
