RUSH SPRINGS, OK (KSWO) –A Goldsby man was flown to OU Medical Center after he failed to yield to a train.

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper says 54-year-old Martin Milster of Goldsby, Oklahoma, failed to yield to a Union Pacific train with 65 box cars three miles north of Rush Springs. The collision was at County Road 1510, just east of Highway 81, at 12:29 p.m. Friday.

Milster and the 2006 Chevy pickup he was in was pushed 1,698 feet from the initial point of contact. He was pinned in his truck for 35 minutes until the Rush Springs Fire Department could free him with the Jaws of Life.

Milster was flown to OU Medical Center. He was admitted in fair condition with head and internal trunk injuries.
