Train hits semi truck in Elkhart County

Viewer Photo

Too close for comfort, that might best describe a semi driver's day in southern Elkhart County

A crossing in New Paris was closed for hours after a train clipped the back of the trailer.

This could have been a lot worse. It was something a little out of the ordinary.

It happened around 1 p.m. Monday in New Paris at C.R. 46 and S. R. 15

A semi driver was driving across a railroad crossing in New Paris. His rig made it most of the way through, but the trailer got caught up in a snow bank.

He was stuck when a freight train passed through and clipped the back of the trailer. Damage to the truck was minor, but the crossing was closed for several hours.

The most amazing part- the driver was not hurt at all.

One of the crossing gates was slightly damaged, but everything is back open Monday night.
