6/5/14 – 5:24 A.M.
A Findlay man avoided injury when the train he was conducting hit a semi in Hardin County Wednesday afternoon. The State Highway Patrol reports the crash happened on U.S. 68 north of Dunkirk around 1:45 p.m. A semi driven by 57-year-old Clarence Jewett didn’t stop for a warning signal, and pulled into the path of a CSX train. The train pushed the truck 800 feet and caused it to catch on fire.
30-year-old Daniel Pierce of Findlay was the conductor of the train. He and the engineer on board were not hurt. Jewett and a CSX worker doing track maintenance both suffered minor injuries.
Jewett was cited for failing to yield to active rail grade signals.
