Man walks away unhurt after car hit by train in Frenchtown

MISSOULA - Authorities say that a man driving drunk was rear-ended by a train over the weekend near Frenchtown, but somehow managed to walk away unscathed.

Officials say Celestino Sanchez, 25, crashed his car through a guardrail and ended up on the tracks, and then started driving down the rails. That's when an oncoming train hit him from behind.

The engineer tried to stop, but still ended up hitting Sanchez's car. He went taken to the hospital, but was not seriously hurt.
