Truck Driver Identified In Fatal Train Crash

Sponsored by:

The driver of a big-rig killed when his tractor-trailer was struck by a commuter train this morning in Anaheim has been identified by his employer.

The Rio Rico Arizona trucking company says the driver was 62-year-old Jose Umberto Alvarez of Mexicali, Mexico.

Authorities say Alvarez apparently tried to make a U-turn at the rail crossing when his big-rig was hit by a Metrolink commuter train.

None of the 115 passengers on board the train was hurt.

A Metrolink spokeswoman says the crossing arms came down on both sides of the big-rig while it was on the tracks.
