Man killed as trin collides with truck
BROCKVILLE (Staff) - An area man was killed Tuesday when the pickup truck he was driving collided with a Toronto-to-Ottawa passenger train six miles north of here.
Clifford William Crummy, 43, of RR 2 Addison was travelling eastward on a concession road of Elizabethtown Township when the accident occurred about 2.30 p.m., Ontario Provincial Police at Brockville said.
There were no passengers in his vehicle.
Mr. Crummy's truck and the Canadian National Railway train collided about two miles from his home at a level crossing marked only by a crossbuck. There are no flashing lights at the crossing, police said, because the concession road is not heavily used.
They estimated about four trains a day cross the road.
The train was reportedly delayed for more than two hours. There were no injuries to train crew or passengers.
