Driver Of Vehicle Struck By Train Being Sought

The Fond du Lac Police Department continues to search for the driver of a vehicle that was struck by a train.

KFIZ Breaking News Editor, Doug Raflik, was on the scene shortly before 3:00 a.m. Saturday (3/12/2022) at the train crossing at Forest Ave. in Fond du Lac.

According to Police Chief Aaron Goldstein, preliminary investigation showed a northbound train operated by CN Railway collided with a Chevrolet sedan that was stopped on the railroad tracks. It appears the vehicle may have been performing some type of turning maneuver and may have become stuck or disabled on the south side of the roadway, while on the railroad tracks.

The car is believed to have been unoccupied when struck by the train. The operator of the vehicle fled the scene prior to law enforcement arrival and the incident remains under investigation.
