Close Call: Train stops moments before it would have hit semittrailer

Email

It was a close call Wednesday morning, when a semitrailer got stuck on the BNSF railroad tracks at North Eighth Street near Washington Street in Brainerd with a train fast approaching.

The train, loaded with coal, stopped about 100 feet before it would’ve reached the semitrailer — potentially property damage and possible injuries.

The Brainerd Police Department was dispatched at 9:55 a.m. to the railroad crossing on North Eighth Street.
