A 40-year old Wisconsin man was killed when his tractor was struck by a freight train in Chippewa County on Tuesday afternoon. Sources say that the man was towing hay at the time of the accident and may not have seen the train coming. Officials released a report stating that crossing signs were in place, but no electronic signs or gates were present at that crossing. Officials are still investigating the cause of the train accident.
Our sincere condolences go out to the family of the victim.
