GREENCASTLE, Pa. — The medical condition of a 49-year-old Greencastle man injured in a train-truck collision Monday has been upgraded, according to a hospital official.

Robert Speak Jr. was listed in serious condition Wednesday afternoon, a York (Pa.) Hospital spokeswoman said.

He was listed in critical condition Tuesday.

Speak was driving a 2005 Ford F-350 work truck that hit a moving train at about 2:40 p.m. Monday on the Mason Road crossing in Antrim Township, Pa.

The railroad crossing is near U.S. 11 at Beck Manufacturing.

The mile-long train, which had three engines and 32 cars, was traveling from an intermodal facility in Harrisburg, Pa., to Atlanta, according to Dave Pidgeon, a spokesman for Norfolk Southern.
