A train crash into a semi-trailer did not result to injuries requiring first aid. According to Asst. Fire Chief Larry Watkinson, the truck was loaded with concrete slabs and became high-centered when moving through the tracks south of McLean Street.
The arms came down while the truck was attempting to move and the driver jumped away before the train struck the vehicle which was launched around 500 meters down the track.
The slabs flew off the trailer like frisbees and destroyed a small outbuilding nearby which brought down the high-voltage lines.
