Man hits train near Earlville

Posted by wlpo on October 18, 2009

Would you notice a train coming down the tracks?  Apparently a man from Earlville didn’t.  Police say Matthew Ruddick hit the two locomotives on a train north of Earlville Saturday afternoon.

The crossing didn’t have a gate, but the train’s conductor says all of the lights and whistles were working. 

Ruddick told police he didn’t hear or see the train.  He was taken to the Mendota Hospital for treatment.
