SAN ANTONIA – San Antonio police are trying to track down two people who were in a pickup truck that collided with two trains along the railroad tracks in the West Side.

Both accidents occurred shortly after 2 a.m. Friday on rails at the end of Kirk Place, a nearby street near General Hadnell and Highway 90.

Police say the truck driver did not stop at the end of the dead end and then drove through a fence and crashed into a train that was standing on the tracks.

At that moment, according to police, the person who was in the truck got out and threw it there.

A few minutes later a second train approached and crashed into the pickup, squeezing it between the two trains. No one was hurt.

The cleaning crew spent hours trying to clear the wreckage of the railroad tracks.

They used an excavator and other construction equipment to split the twisted metal into pieces and then lift them out of the way.

A police sergeant told KSAT 12 News that officers contacted the pickup owner by phone and he refused to drive the truck.

He told officers he lent it to two friends who called him shortly after the first crash, saying they were in an accident.

As of Friday morning, police still had not found the two people and had not spoken to them.
