The Wichita Eagle reports that the truck rolled over Friday morning in south Wichita. The driver was pinned inside the vehicle when deputies arrived and noticed a Burlington Northern Santa Fe train approaching at about 35 miles per hour.
Deputy John Scaglione is credited with pulling the driver through the front windshield. Sheriff's Lieutenant Brad Hoch described the deputy's actions as "very heroic" and said he "didn't think twice about what he was doing."
The unidentified 35-year-old driver was taken to a Wichita hospital with shoulder injuries, cuts and scrapes. Authorities are investigating why the truck rolled over.
