No injuries as train demolishes semi trailer

By Staff, 10/23/19 9:54 AM

PRESCOTT – Early Wednesday morning a semi attempted to cross the tracks at Nevada County Road 51, though there’s a sign at the road’s entrance plainly stating no trucks.

Apparently when the driver realized this, he attempted to back up and the trailer got high-centered on the tracks. A train came through and demolished the trailer, scattering the load more than 200 yards. Crews worked to clean up the detritus which included lubricant, baby walkers, baby cribs, vacuum cleaners and a mishmash of other items.

No one was hurt in the incident.
