Update: Man Dies After Vehicle Gets Stuck On Tracks
ST. CLOUD -- An update for you on the deadly crash involving a train Wednesday morning. The Sherburne County Sheriff's Office says a man died after the vehicle he was driving got stuck on the railroad tracks and was hit by the train.
The vehicle burst into flames after being hit.
The crash happened at about 2:45 a.m. in the 3400 block of Highway 10.
Witnesses reported seeing a four-door passenger vehicle stuck on the tracks and the driver rocking back and forth trying to get it off the tracks.
