Amazingly, no one hurt

Amazingly, no one hurt

Wreckage of a Price River Water Improvement District sewer cleaning truck and rail crossing signal are widely scattered after the truck drove into the path of a Union Pacific freight train Friday morning. Driver Patrick Hansen and a passenger were not seriously hurt in the collision. The train devastated the rear of the truck, but left the cab unscathed. The wreck happened at about 10:45 a.m. Hansen was westbound on Railroad Avenue parallel to the tracks. The train was also westbound and behind the truck. The truck driver, who apparently neither saw nor heard the train, the flashing crossing signal or the train's horn, made a right turn over the tracks. The impact sent truck parts flying. It took about four blocks from the collision for the train to come to a complete stop.
