RAPHO TOWNSHIP, LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. -- The Amtrak Police Department is investigating a train crash out of Lancaster County tonight.
Authorities say a train struck a farm tractor that was on the tracks this morning.After hearing about the incident, some people in Rapho Township worried what might have happened to the driver.
A Deputy Fire Chief who responded to the crash says the driver only suffered a minor head injury."It could’ve been a lot worse," said Jason Sauder, the Deputy Fire Chief of West Hempfield Township Fire Department.
Sauder responded to the crash."With my background, with what I do, it makes your adrenaline rush a little more because it sort of hits home," he explained.
Hitting home because Sauder is both a volunteer firefighter and a farmer himself.
