The driver of a truck that crashed into a freight train at a village crossing Friday afternoon appears to be OK, family members said.

The accident happened at about 2 p.m. when the truck, carrying 24 tons of corn to be used by local farmers for feed, couldn't stop as it headed downhill on a slippery Fisherman's Lane straight for the passing train, family members and officials at the scene said.

The truck's trailer collided with the first locomotive pulling the train, operated by Pan Am Railways. The crash forced the truck's cab and the driver into the Hoosic River and left the trailer, smashed, on the northern end of the bridge, officials said.

The driver was able to get out of the water, his relatives said, and he was taken to St. Mary's Hospital in Troy. His condition wasn't available, but the family members said he was not seriously hurt. They declined to provide his name."

LOL that's funny. It's good he wasn't hurt or killed. The lesson learned is trains always, ALWAYS win.
