Train Slams Into Truck, Killing Driver

Investigators are looking into a deadly crash involving a Norfolk Southern Train.

The train slammed into a truck in Pulaski County at around 3:30 on Thursday afternoon. The accident happened along Freedom Church Road, just south of Eubank.

The truck, which was hauling household appliances, was pushed hundreds of feet down the track by the oncoming train.

The coroner has not released the identity of the victim, but says he was a man in his 30's who worked as a subcontractor for Home Depot in Lexington. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators say the truck either stopped or stalled on the tracks, but don't know which.

Norfolk Southern is conducting its own investigation into the deadly accident.
