Update: 2 Men Survive Train-Pickup Crash

The driver of a truck that collided with a train walks with an Idaho State Police trooper by his damaged truck near the train tracks at Idaho Rd. and Prairie Ave/Jesse Tinsley, Spokesman-Review.

Police Scanner: at 10:44, report of car-train accident at Prairie Avenue and North Idaho Road. Helicopter en route. Update: Neither of the two men in the vehicle seems to be seriously injured in the crash with a small train consisting of an engine and one car. But there’s an odd-ball aspect to this accident. The driver had picked up the passenger after the passenger had run out of gas. They were talking to each other when they ran into the train. The rig was totaled. Meghann Cuniff story here.
