COALDALE: A Lethbridge man suffered no injuries after his semi-truck was hit by a train Thursday morning. Mounties say alcohol wasn't a factor in the crash at the intersection of Highway 3 and Range Road 20-5. Lethbridge RCMP were called to the scene of the crash at about 7 a.m. They say the driver wasn't paying attention and didn't stop at a stop sign. An eastbound train then slammed into the trailer attached to the back of his vehicle. RCMP Constable Pelletier told Country 95 News the trailer is totaled but the vehicle it was attached to is fine. Terry Gallais, 62, got a $230 ticket for "failing to stop at a crossing."
