September 25, 2011- A Madera man sustained only minor injuries after his pickup collided with an Amtrak train Sunday morning. The crash occurred at about 7 AM, in the Madera area, north of Fresno.

Joe Irami, was driving a 2010 Dodge truck east on Avenue 15, west of Santa Fe Drive. He was approaching the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe tracks, and realized that the crossing arms were down. Irami slammed on his brakes, but the truck did not stop in time, and smashed into the train.

Irami was taken to Community Regional Medical Center, in Fresno to be treated for minor injuries.

The accident is under investigation.
