A 45-year-old Golden man died in a fatal train-truck accident about 5 a.m. Thursday northeast of Camp Point. The vehicle was located at 5:15 a.m. by police about a quarter-mile west of the crossing.

Adams County Coroner Jim Keller said Khristopher K. Hunt was pronounced dead at 6:20 a.m. Thursday as a result of injuries suffered in the accident. He was the sole occupant of the vehicle when it was struck.

Two ambulances, the Adams County Sheriff's Department deputies and two fire departments were dispatched to County Road North 2150th Avenue between County Road East 2400th and Ill. 94.

Authorities requested searchlights at the accident scene as well as the Central Adams Fire Department's Ranger vehicle to assist at 5:25 a.m.

An eastbound train was headed toward Coatsburg at 5:28 a.m., and the Central Fire Department alerted police, who then alerted the BNSF Railway to halt the train before it could reach the accident scene. The train was stopped in Camp Point.
