Tractor-trailer struck by train in Mount Wolf

Posted: Updated:

A tractor-trailer heading into the borough of Mount Wolf crossed a set of railroad tracks into the path of an oncoming train Monday.

The crash occurred at the Georgia-Pacific plant near Maple and Walnut streets around 1 p.m.

The semi was pushed about 200 feet before the train came to a stop.

The truck driver had a few scrapes to his face, but was not seriously injured and refused medical treatment.

Northeastern Regional police said the driver told them he stopped at a stop sign before crossing the tracks and looked both ways, but did not see the train.

As the tractor-trailer crossed the tracks, the driver told authorities that he heard the train horn and then felt the impact, police said.

The crew of the train was not injured.
