Job 12 at a snail's pace on 9th Ave SE.

Near Miss with Truck

CRANDIC's Job 12 had a near miss with a Penske truck leased by T&M Services of Cedar Rapids. The truck was parked too close to the right-of-way; earlier Job 12 had a near-miss heading for downtown.

Coming back through, it was about the same. The photos tell the story. The train was going at a snail's pace as a conductor was "walking" the train thru the tight spot.

I do not know if T&M Services was ever contacted about their truck but I am pretty sure they will be cited by the City.
