A crash of epic proportions in DeRidder yesterday. An 18 wheeler driven by Hurchel Britton was heading east on highway 190 when it approached a railroad crossing with active lights. Britton says he didn't see the train initially and began to cross, but was struck by the caboose of the train causing it to derail.

No injuries were reported, but the highway was closed down for 8 hours.

Britton was issued a citation for failure to obey a trail signal.
