A train and pickup truck collision on Friday sent one Litchfield man to the hospital with serious injuries and killed another. Around 11:30am, 30-year-old Brian L. Irwin of Litchfield was westbound on St Johns Road just east of Old Route 66. At that time, Irwin attempted to cross a rural Norfolk Southern railroad crossing. Irwin allegedly failed to yield to a northbound train. The train struck Irwin in the driver’s side area. As a result of the crash, Irwin suffered serious injuries and was transported by Arch Helicopter to Memorial Hospital in Springfield. The passenger, 26-year-old Nicholas H. Rayphole of Litchfield, suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by the Macoupin County Coroner.
