An Amtrak passenger train crashed into an SUV in southeastern Vermont, killing the SUV’s driver and injuring his passenger, authorities said. The state police said 53-year-old Craig Hudson, of Brattleboro, died in the crash Friday in Vernon. His passenger, 47-year-old Shenandoah Gilbert, of Vernon, was being treated for injuries at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire. No one was hurt on the train, which continued its route after a delay. Amtrak said there were 215 passengers on board train 56, which was traveling from Washington, D.C., to St. Albans. A state police reconstruction team is investigating the crash, with remote assistance from Amtrak police.
