UPDATE: One person killed in train/car collision

The crash halted train traffic between Toronto and Montreal for most of the afternoon...

Via Rail says service is resuming after a fatal crash between a CN freight train and a vehicle in eastern Ontario.

The vehicle's driver was killed in the crash that happened at around 10 o'clock on Wednesday morning, just west of Trenton.

Via Rail spokeswoman Mylene Belanger says passengers on lines linking Toronto to Ottawa and Montreal are facing delays.

She says six trains that use the routes are delayed between 30 minutes and 3 1/2 hours.

Belanger adds the trains that left their destinations in the early hours of the morning are affected the most.

She says other passengers should no longer expect significant delays as the tracks where the collision happened are now open.
