Semi Driver Involved in Crash With Train Dies

Posted: Updated:

The driver of a semi that collided with a freight train in western Minnesota last week has died. 

St. Cloud Hospital spokeswoman Jeanine Nistler says Eric Westin, of Pine City, died early Monday morning.

Westin was hauling a load of anhydrous ammonia when his tanker was hit by a BNSF train near Murdock in Swift County last Tuesday.

The train's engine pushed the semi off the road and caused a rupture and leak which led to a temporary evacuation of the area.

Three train crew members were injured, treated at a hospital and released.
