Peter Barnum, 35, was driving his tractor-trailer full of trash to Maine’s North Berwick dump yesterday when he locked up the brakes, slid through a crossing gate and into the path of an Amtrack train.
According to the Bangor Daily News, Barnum was killed and three train passengers, of the 109 on board, were injured.
The crash was heard miles away and the towering explosion shot more than three-stories high.
