OCONTO, WI (WTAQ) - Oconto police say a man was arrested for drunk driving following a crash near railroad tracks.

It happened at the intersection of Pecor Street and Broadway Avenue around 8:15 p.m. Thursday.

The driver, who's 25, was driving south on Broadway in his pickup truck. A train was also heading in the same direction on track parallel to Broadway. The driver turned left onto Pecor Street in front of the train and struck a car that was stopped on Pecor and waiting for the train to pass.

The pickup rolled several times, coming to a stop on the east side of the train tracks.

The truck driver was taken to a hospital for treatment and released into police custody. A 21-year-old woman who was riding in the pickup was taken to a Green Bay hospital.

The car's driver was treated and released at the scene.

The pickup driver has yet to be formally charged.
