sprinterVISTA, Calif. — A suspected drunken driver’s truck was struck by a Sprinter train near Vista, but neither he nor any of the train’s 37 passengers were injured, a sheriff’s deputy said Friday.

The driver was headed west on South Santa Fe Avenue but became stuck on the tracks near the intersection with Woodland Drive shortly after 8:30 p.m. Thursday, sheriff’s Deputy Ed Macken said.

The driver was able to get out of the truck before the crash and was spotted trying to stop the train by waving it down, Macken said. He was not struck, but his truck sustained major damage.

Following the crash, the driver was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, driving a vehicle onto railroad tracks and driving with a suspended license, according to Macken. His name was not immediately released.

    How does this loser's name not get released. As soon as some criminal accuses a cop of anything, the officer's name hits the news. Ridiculous!

    Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to grasp a lot
    about this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something.
    I feel that you simply could do with a few % to
    drive the message home a bit, however other than that, this is great blog.
    A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

    Who am I going to spend the holidays with. In the US, the
    penalty for DUI may differ in every single state. There are
    a few choices open to you which go in the direction of discovering ways to keep your
    license, regardless of whether it’s negotiating a plea using the
    area lawyer or going to trial and difficult the evidence against you.

    However, getting them to scan a QR code because they are curious about

    what it contains wouldn’t be too much of a guilt trip on their end as

    they wouldn’t be dealing with a newsletter they ignored or pictures that they had no idea what to do

    with. Apple details almost the entire process in their knowledge-base

    article HT1933. The texts aren’t too long and (although some people are complaining about this) it’s nice to read a complete section in about 15 minutes.
