COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (AP) Police in the Metro East community of Collinsville are trying to figure out who left a bulldozer on railroad tracks as a possible prank before it was rammed by a train.

Investigators said the crash early Jan. 12 near the city’s Glidden Park didn’t cause a derailment or any injuries.

But police said the wreck seriously damaged the CSX locomotive and the bulldozer.

Authorities said the bulldozer belonged to the city and appears to have been stolen from a construction site.

Anyone with information about the matter is asked to call Collinsville police.
