Commuter Train Hits Semi Stuck On Tracks

 Thursday, February 5, 2015


A driver was trapped on commuter rail tracks in Braintree Wednesday morning and escaped just before a train plowed into his tractor trailer. "Couldn’t back up, then it starts dinging dinging dinging, next then I know I look over and here comes the train, and I jump and bam put that thing sideways down the track,” Herman said. The driver was stuck in snow and ice after making a delivery at an office park Wednesday morning. He attempted to make a big right-hand turn and became caught up in a snow bank, with the cab right in front of some train tracks.
