      Man survives run-in with train

      An Eolia man is lucky to be alive after a close encounter with a train early Sunday.

      The Missouri Highway Patrol reports around 1:15 in the morning, 40-year-old Devlon Walker was driving on a gravel path parallel to train tracks in Pike County, Missouri when he attempted to cross the tracks in an area not designated as a crossing zone.

      That's when his truck became stuck in the gravel as a train approached and hit the front passenger side of the vehicle.

      Walker took on moderate injuries in the crash and was transported to Pike County Memorial Hospital in Louisiana.
