Truck Gets Stuck On Tracks, Is Hit By Train

Posted: Updated:

WYOMING, Del. (AP) - State police say a Dover man was drunk when he got his pickup truck stuck onto some railroad tracks, causing it to be hit by a train.
 
No one was injured in the collision, which occurred around 3 a.m. in Wyoming. Police say 32-year-old Jacob Founds was trying to turn onto West Camden-Wyoming Avenue, but he started his turn too soon and got his truck stuck on the tracks.
 
Founds got out of the truck and tried to push it off the tracks but could not. It was hit by a Norfolk Southern train that was pulling 99 empty hopper cars. The train pushed the truck about 30 feet.
 
Founds has been cited for driving under the influence of alcohol.
