Man Injured At Crossing As Truck Cab Struck By Train

HETTINGER, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a 56-year-old semi-truck driver was injured at an Adams County railroad crossing when his cab was struck by a train.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says David Pastoors of Olivia, Minnesota, was driving the semi-truck north on a gravel township road just before 4 p.m. Tuesday. Pastoors traveled through the railroad crossing and was struck on the driver's side door by a BNSF train that was heading east.

Pastoors was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Hettinger for treatment. His condition was not known.
