COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - A municipal spokesman says a pickup truck skidded 62 feet into the side of a train in Mississippi, crushing the truck and killing the driver.

Police tell WTVA-TV (https://bit.ly/2dFwB9C ) the driver was a 52-year-old man. His name is being withheld until his family is notified.

City of Columbus spokesman Joe Dillon says part of the truck was caught under the train and that traffic on Main Street was stopped for five hours following the crash, which happened at 3:25 a.m. Tuesday.
