Car thieves appear to have abandoned a pickup truck that was struck by an early morning train in Glen Valley Wednesday.

At 6:38 a.m., Oct. 12, CN Rail contacted the Langley RCMP to report that one of their trains had struck a vehicle in the area of 91 Avenue and 272 Street.

Once on scene, officers determined the truck was unoccupied at the time of the collision and appeared to have been abandoned on the railroad crossing.

Fortunately, the occupants of the train were uninjured.

The green Dodge pickup truck had no licence plates and suffered significant damage. Police queries show that the truck was stolen from Abbotsford on Oct. 9.

The train did sustain minor damage but was able to continue once the truck had been removed from the tracks. The railroad tracks were undamaged.

The railroad tracks and crossing were closed for approximately one and a half hours as officers investigated and the truck was removed.
