Man Escapes Vehicle Before Train Crashes Into It

An Appomattox County man escaped his vehicle just before it was hit by an oncoming train on Thursday. Authorities say the man was driving down a private road along Campbell Farm Lane in Spout Spring, when his truck got caught on snowy tracks. Media outlets report, the man heard the locomotive approaching, the wheels were spinning but not moving, so the driver bailed out moments before the train struck. The truck was demolished but no one was injured.
