Semi Driver Pulls Rig In Path of Slow-Moving BNSF Train
The BNSF train was only going between 5 and 10 miles per hour
GRAND FORKS, N.D. — For the second time in about a week, a vehicle drives into the path of a slow-moving train in Grand Forks.
This time it was a semi driven by 31-year-old Travis Bitker of Bemidji.
Police say Bitker was driving through the yard of the State Mill at the time of the crash.
The BNSF train was only going between 5 and 10 miles per hour when it hit the semi.
No injuries are reported.
One week ago Sunday, an elderly woman was hurt after driving in front of a slow-moving BNSF train at Demers and 42nd Street.
