Meyersdale Train Accident

A roadway in Somerset County was closed for hours Today after a train crashed into a backhoe.

The scene has since been cleared but take a look at this video of the damage from earlier Today near Main Street in Meyersdale.

Dispatchers say this backhoe was hit and rolled onto its side by a traveling CSX train.

Details are very limited at this time but dispatchers did confirm that thankfully no one was hurt.

Dispatchers say it happened around 2:00 this afternoon with neighbors around the area telling us they heard a big boom.

We spoke withCclark Brant who lives steps away from where the crash happened and says he’s glad the backhoe didn’t get pushed all the way into his yard.

“My kitchen is right there in the corner, I’m sitting there watching the news and these guys working at crossing all day and week train was running on track number one. i seen the guys all started running, guy jumped out of the back hoe, the train come and just kept pushing the backhoe up the road.”
