COOS BAY, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon newspaper carrier was lucky to be delivering a story about himself this week.

The Coos Bay World reports (https://is.gd/LZzCwv ) that Ric Seavello was behind the wheel of a Toyota Matrix that collided with a locomotive in the coastal city.

Seavello says a commercial truck was blocking his view Tuesday. When he tried to get past the truck, the train was suddenly on top of him.

On instinct, he pulled as far to the side of the road as possible. But the train caught the front left side of his car and dragged the vehicle more than 100 feet.

World publisher Jeff Precourt says Seavello is one of the company’s most reliable and enthusiastic carriers.

Seavello proved it the next day, using a rental car to deliver the news.
