A man is taken to the hospital Thursday afternoon after his vehicle is hit by a train.
Dakota County Sheriff's Deputies say a man was driving on Pine Street in Dakota City and didn't hear a train coming.
They say the driver's dump truck was hit by the train.
Deputies say the truck was empty at the time of the accident.
"We just want to make sure that the public is aware. When you come up to a track or any kind of intersection where there is a train involved, please look both ways before crossing that track. As you know they are not always signals. There is some sort of sign. Just be aware of your surroundings and make sure you stay safe," Penny Kleinberg, a Dakota County Sheriff's Deputy said.
Authorities say the driver was transported to Mercy Medical Center with a head injury and is listed in fair condition.
