HARRODSBURG - Chad Richards of Harrodsburg was injured Thursday afternoon when his truck was struck by a train.
The truck he was driving was the tractor of a tractor-trailer rig. The truck was near the railroad tracks at Cornishville and Moberly roads. Sgt. Terry Cornish, the officer investigating the collision, said the Norfolk Southern train was traveling west on the tracks.
It appeared that Richards turned right from Moberly Road onto Cornishville Road and got the nose of his truck over the tracks.
All witnesses said the lights and bells at the crossing were working properly, Cornish said, and the train's horn was in use.
