PRINCEVILLE - An accident in Princeville brought rail traffic to a halt for awhile Monday morning. Just before 11AM, a pick-up truck being towed by another truck became disconnected from its tow chain as it crossed a set of tracks on Walnut Avenue. The train conductor saw the truck blocking the tracks and was able to slow down... but unable to stop to avoid the accident. An Illinois State trooper was on the scene investigating, but it's unclear if any tickets were issued. No one was injured in the incident.
