Train hits unoccupied truck in Waterloo

A train dragged an unoccupied pickup truck for a about mile after hitting it early Sunday in Waterloo, according to the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department.

For an unknown reason, the truck, a 1998 Dodge Dakota, was sitting on the tracks about 385 feet west of the Center Street crossing.

A westbound Norfolk Southern mail train struck the truck about 4 a.m. and took about a mile to come to a stop.

No one was inside the truck that was owned by an Auburn man, and no injuries were reported.

The crash caused an estimated $200,000 in damage to the train and tracks. The truck was totaled.

Investigators are trying to figure out why the truck was left on the tracks.
