A man was arrested after the stolen all-terrain vehicle he was driving was hit by a train in Angola Saturday night, sheriff's deputies said Sunday.
Deputy George Adymy of the Angola substation said two men were driving ATVs along Conrail tracks about 7:15 p.m. Saturday when the units stalled on North Street. The men saw a train approaching and ran away, but the train hit one of the vehicles.
The men initially disclaimed ownership, but Adymy learned that one of the units was stolen from Elma in a burglary in January.
Rodrigue Nadeau, 48, of Old Eden Evans Center Road, Evans, told Adymy he bought the ATV through a newspaper ad. Nadeau was charged with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property.
No train personnel were injured, but there were train delays until the tracks were cleared, Adymy said.
