Lawrence L. Soles, 74, Stryker, was uninjured after his sport utility vehicle collided with a Norfolk Southern train about 3:30 pm, Wednesday, May 10.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol report states Soles was backing the SUV in the southbound lane of the Co. Rd. D “slant” crossing. The crossing arm blocking the northbound lane was down at the time.
The westbound train, pulling a double-stacked load of shipping containers, struck the front of the SUV.
Archbold Rescue responded to the crash scene.
Troopers cited Soles for failure to stop at a railroad crossing when the gates were down.
