GOSHEN — GOSHEN — Goshen fire and police personnel were dispatched to the 400 block of North First Street at 1:08 p.m. Monday in reference to a small truck that, for unknown reasons, had just struck the train cars of an eastbound Norfolk Southern train.

Upon arrival, officers found a Ford Ranger truck with a single occupant. The driver of the truck appeared to be semi-conscious and breathing. The driver, Norman Davis, 58, of Goshen, was trapped in his truck and had to be extricated with the assistance of the Goshen Fire Department. Davis was transported by ambulance to the parking lot of Brenneman Missionary Church from where he was airlifted to South Bend Memorial Hospital for treatment of labored breathing, multiple lacerations and a possible head injury.

This incident remains under investigation by the Goshen Police department.
