Train collides with pickup, driver unhurt

A Cloquet man escaped injury after a train collided with his pickup.

No one was hurt in the accident that happened near the intersection of Central Hall Road and Highway 210 in Sawyer Township just after 4:30 p.m. Monday.

The Carlton County Sheriff's Department said 74-year-old John Martin Junior lost control of his truck when it began to slide due to icy road conditions.

That, authorities said, is when the Burlington Northern & Santa Fe train hit Martin's truck.

The Carlton County Sheriff's Department, Fond du Lac Police, Minnesota State Patrol and Carlton Fire & Ambulance responded to the crash.
