TRAIN CRASH: Semi Driver Critically Injured


A semi truck driver is in critical condition after his truck was hit by a train Tuesday night.

It happened just before 7:00 p.m. east of Menlo in Guthrie County.

The State Patrol says 74-year-old Ira Stine of Adel was at the wheel of the semi and didn’t yield to an oncoming train. The train hit behind the cab, splitting the truck into two.

The cab ended up on the south side of the tracks and the trailer on the north side.

Stine was taken by air ambulance to a Des Moines hospital.
