Funeral Saturday for driver in truck-train collision
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Funeral services will be on Saturday for a West Virginia logging truck driver who died in a collision with a sightseeing train.
The truck driver, Danny Lee Kimble Sr. of Bartow, was killed on Oct. 11. Twenty-three people were injured when the collision occurred along U.S. 250 atop Cheat Mountain, about 160 miles east of Charleston.
The Durbin & Greenbrier Railroad's Cheat Mountain Salamander train, carrying 63 passengers and four crew members, had embarked on a trip to observe fall foliage when the loaded log truck collided with it.
Two passenger cars flipped on their sides.
Kimble's funeral is scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday in Arbovale at the Wallace & Wallace Funeral Home.
