A man was killed Sunday night when his pickup truck collided with a train in Arden, Manitoba.
The collision happened just after 8:30 p.m. at the Boughton Street tracks.
Police say the man’s eastbound truck was travelling at a low rate of speed when it approached the uncontrolled crossing. The driver attempted to stop, but was hit by the northbound train. The 68-year-old driver was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Road conditions at the time were icy and alcohol is not considered a factor.
RCMP are continuing to investigate.
