A train hit a dump truck at a rail crossing near Goshen in Tulare County on Monday. The crossing does not have any protective barriers, lights or warning sirens.
The San Joaquin Valley Railroad hit the dump truck at full speed, causing severe injury to the driver of the truck and 2,000 gallons of diesel fuel to leak out of the train.
The 17-car short line rail train was heading east from Goshen at Road 60 and Avenue 308.
Several of the train cars fell off of the rails, but the train did not topple, according to the police.
The driver of the truck was taken to the hospital with major injuries. His truck is owned by MD Concrete Cutting.
A 32-year-old woman died at the same crossing in June when her car was hit by the train.
