GREENCASTLE, Pa. — A 49-year-old Greencastle man was flown to York (Pa.) Hospital with reported head injuries suffered Monday afternoon when his work truck collided with a moving freight train in Antrim Township, Pa., according to Pennsylvania State Police.
Trooper Robert T. Hicks said the man’s name would not be released until police finished their investigation of the crash.
Hicks, who did not provide further details about the man’s condition, said the timetable to complete the investigation was unknown Monday evening.
The 2:40 p.m. crash closed Mason Road for several hours. The railroad crossing is near Beck Manufacturing, just off Molly Pitcher Highway, or U.S. 11, north of Greencastle.
When crews removed the Dual County Heating & Air Conditioning truck from the scene, the passenger’s side of the crushed 2005 Ford E-350 was gone.
State police are handling the investigation.
Norfolk Southern, which owns the tracks where the crash occurred, is also conducting a secondary internal investigation, according to officials.
