"A northbound Interstate 35 access road was closed and a man was in serious condition Wednesday afternoon after officials say his truck was hit by a train near mile marker 314.

Herbert Booth, 72, of Rockport, was westbound on a private drive to the Eddy Cemetery in a 2011 Dodge pickup pulling a flatbed trailer when he failed to yield and drove in front of the train at about 1:45 p.m., Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper D.L. Wilson said.

The train struck Booth’s truck, pushing him about 600 yards down the tracks.

Booth was treated at the scene by emergency medical personnel and airlifted to Scott & White Memorial Hospital in Temple in serious condition.

Booth was also carrying 10 hunting dogs in the trailer, Wilson said. One of the dogs died in the accident and another was injured, he said.

The train, which was carrying miscellaneous products, suffered minor damage."
