Chatham-Kent, Ont: 78-year-old truck driver killed on passive crossing

19 Nov

The 78-year-old driver of a large truck was killed when it was struck by a train on a passive level crossing. The collision which occurred at about 12.40 on November 16th was on Euphemia Line in the Dawn-Euphemia Township in Lambton County. Images published in local media show the crossing to have a poor profile which fits with a police description of the truck driver trying to cross the railway when it was struck by a southbound freight train.
