Idahoans unscathed after their truck is hit by train

An Idaho man and woman were unhurt after their truck was hit by a train in Parma early Sunday morning, according to an Idaho State Police press release.

Sixty-year-old Jack E. Carey, of Sand Hollow, was driving his 2006 Ford F-150 over train tracks around 1 a.m. when the vehicle stuck on the tracks, police said. Both Carey and his passenger, 47-year-old Renisha L. Montoya, of Meridian, left the vehicle.

The pickup was then hit by a Union Pacific train.

Neither Carey nor Montaya was injured, nor were any train personnel.

It wasn’t immediately clear why the truck got stuck on the tracks. Police did not release the extent of damage to either the train or the truck.
