Authorities are not able to release the name of the man, but say he was sitting up and talking with officers before being taken to Essentia.

The train was traveling around 25 miles per hour when it struck the passenger side of his truck-trailer hauling a hopper bin.

The Durbin-bound train pushed the truck more than 100 yards. Authorities say the accident could've been much worse.

The crossing is marked with a railroad crossing sign.
