It happened just before 10 Thursday evening at the intersection of County Road 600S and County Road 410N near Hillsdale.
Officials say a man in a truck was trying to cross the railroad tracks on County Road 600S; that's when his truck became wedged in gap between the road and the railroad tracks.
According to a witness, the man then tried to get out of the truck; but became lodged on something inside the truck.
That's when the train hit his vehicle.
Police are not releasing the name of the victim at this time.
