According to Highway Patrol Trooper Tyler Shelby, the man, whose name was not available at press time, was headed west on a county road about one mile north of Blair and west of U.S. Highway 283 when he crossed the railroad track.
The track was posted with signs but no crossing guards.
The train's engine, which was pulling two cars at about 10 mph, collided with the plow while the driver of the tractor remained seated.
“I guess he just didn't see the train coming,” Shelby said.
The conductor of the train, as well, came out of the wreck unscathed.
