1:30 p.m. (UPDATE 2)
Faulkner Road is CLOSED and Hwy 105 E. is allowing limited traffic due to the train vs. 18-wheeler crash that occurred around 1 p.m.
The 18-wheeler “high centered” on the tracks and was stuck when the train approached. Trains need far more time to stop than other vehicles, and by the time the conductor could see an obstruction, it was too late. The train hit the big rig. Thankfully, the truckdriver was not injured.
The intersection will reopen when the crash is cleared, but there is currently no estimate of how long that will take.
1:10 p.m. (UPDATE)
It’s confirmed the crash is an 18-wheeler vs. train. Please avoid the area.
