State police tell the Press-Republican of Plattsburgh that 42-year-old Lawrence Nichols of Champlain was driving the tractor across a crossing on private land in the town of Chazy early Wednesday afternoon when the vehicle got stuck.
Troopers say a southbound Amtrak train wasn't able to stop in time and plowed into the tractor, destroying it.
Nichols got out of the way as the train approached and wasn't injured. No one on the train was hurt.
