Driver okay but cited after semi truck obliterated by train


A truck driver is okay after a wreck that obliterated his rig in Idaho on Tuesday. 

The accident happened on December 22nd at around 10 a.m. at U.S. Highway 95 and Highway 20/26 in Canyon County, near Deb Lane crossing.

According to KTVB 7 News, an empty semi truck failed to yield to an oncoming train and was struck, obliterating the rig and rupturing the fuel tank, spilling fuel across the tracks.  It is unclear whether the semi truck driver was stopped on the train tracks or was attempting to cross ahead of the train at the time the incident occurred.

Luckily, the 65-year-old unnamed driver was miraculously uninjured in the incident, but he has since been cited. The exact nature of his citations were not clear.
