Ottawa Citizen 3 March 1986

In another accident involving a train on the weekend, a pickup truck was scraped by a westbound VIA train in Casselman. The driver drove off without waiting for police.
 A VIA spokesman said crew members saw the truck as the train struck its rear bumper.
The train, which was bound for Ottawa from Montreal, stopped and returned to the scene of the accident to find that the vehicle had disappeared.
"It looks like a driver went against a flashing red light and just got his rear end wiped out," said Casselman OPP Const. Langis Lebel.
