Paul A. Grierson, 52, of Carlisle, was heading west on Fairview Drive at about 11:15 p.m. Friday when his truck went across a marked stop bar, crashed into the closed railroad gate and past the flashing railroad crossing sign, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol. Then it hit a northbound CSX train.
Firefighters freed him from the truck, and a medical helicopter took him to Miami Valley Hospital.
