An Alburnett man was injured in a collision with a train on Wednesday morning.
It happened at the railroad crossing near 2753 Arabian Road southwest of Alburnett. The Linn County Sheriff’s Office says 33-year old Kyle Hite had just left his home heading eastbound on Arabian Road and wasn’t able to stop his semi for the approaching train. Hite’s semi slid onto the tracks just as the train was crossing. The train struck the passenger side of Hite’s semi, pushing it off the tracks into the ditch.
The Sheriff’s Office says Hite suffered what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.
He was cited for failing to stop/railroad crossing not clear.
No one on the train was injured.
