BUFFALO, W.Va. (AP) - Police say a Buffalo man has died after his pickup truck collided with a train at a crossing.

The Putnam County Sherriff’s Department tells media outlets that 73-year-old Charles Harrison was driving the pickup across an unguarded crossing when a Norfolk Southern train hit the vehicle.

The accident occurred Tuesday on state Route 62, just south of Buffalo. Harrison was pronounced dead at the scene.

A witness told deputies that the train’s horn was blowing when the collision occurred.

The road was shut down temporarily while the accident was being investigated.
