HARVEY, N.D. — A man suffered serious injuries when the truck he was driving collided with a train on Wednesday, Oct. 12, near Harvey.

According to a report from the North Dakota Highway Patrol, the incident occurred shortly after 11 a.m. on 23rd Street Northeast, five miles southeast of Harvey.

The Highway Patrol said Rodney Lund was driving a 2023 Volvo tractor and pulling an empty trailer on 23rd Street when he failed to come to a complete stop at an intersection. The truck crossed railroad tracks and a westbound Canadian Pacific train struck the semi on the driver's side.

Lund, 65, of Annamoose, North Dakota, was airlifted to Sanford Hospital in Bismarck with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

There are potential charges pending in this case, according to an updated release from the NDHP.

Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
