In case you haven't heard, a logging truck driver was killed and 66 people
were taken to the hospital when a log truck crashed into the side of the
Cheat Mountain Salamander at Cheat Bridge, WV. Five people were seriously
injured and the other 61 passengers and crew on the Cheat Mountain
Salamander were transported to Davis Hospital in Elkins after the log truck
slammed into the train at Cheat Bridge. Two passenger cars were flipped on
their sides in the crash.

Sandy Burky, director of passenger services at Durbin & Greenbrier Valley
Railroad, said the train struck in the accident Friday afternoon was the
Cheat Mountain Salamander. She said a total of 66 people on the train -- 63
passengers and three crew members -- were taken to Davis Memorial Hospital
following the wreck that occurred at the railroad crossing of US 250 at
Cheat Bridge.

US 250 is still closed at this writing.
