Oct 28 (Reuters) - Ten people were injured when a Chicago-bound Amtrak passenger train collided with a semi-tractor trailer at a crossing in northern Indiana on Tuesday morning, an Amtrak official said.

The train was traveling from Indianapolis with 56 passengers and three crew members, said Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari.

He said none of the injuries to the 10 passengers and crew members appear serious and they were being examined by medical personnel at the scene of the accident, which happened at about 7:45 a.m. local time north of Lafayette, Indiana.

Magliari said he did not know if any would be admitted to the hospital.

Magliari also did not know the condition of the driver of the truck or why it was in the crossing. (Reporting by Mary Wisniewski in Chicago and Brendan O'Brien in Milwaukee; Editing by Bill Trott)
