UNION MILLS A car was hit by a train early Thursday morning in LaPorte County. The driver of that car didn't survive.
40-year-old Brian Massengill crossed the tracks on State Road 39 just south of U.S. 6 before 4a.m. That's just south of Union Mills.
The tracks in that area are closed for repairs. Massengill went around two barricades, and police believe his vehicle got stuck on the train tracks.
A westbound Canadian National train struck the drivers door. He died of blunt force trauma.
A toxicology report is pending.
