I was on Highway 20 driving to my business when I saw the train hit the truck. There was an explosion right away, and the train was pushing the truck down the tracks,” Bair said. “I got on the phone with 911 and started driving down the median to get to the front of the train when it stopped.

It was a conscious decision that I’m going in because he needs help right now,” Bair told East Idaho News. “I ran up to the window and saw dripping hot flames all over inside of the truck.
