Sibley County Sheriff

A Wabasso man was involved in an accident Jan. 15 with a tie crane at a railroad crossing in Winthrop.

Thomas First, 55, of Wabasso, was driving a 2007 Chrysler mini-van southbound on County Road 33, when a tie crane, driven by Cody Ekstrom, 27, of Norwood-Young America, came off the tracks onto the track and collided with First.

A tie crane is a rail maintenance vehicle used to move and handle railroad ties used in track relaying.

All parties were wearing seat belts, and there were no injuries. Both vehicles had moderate damage.
