Matthew Kasun, 26, of Muskego, left his 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe on the railroad tracks after he got the SUV stuck. After police arrived on scene, the SUV was struck by the train and was 75 yards. The SUV had significant damage.
Kasun told police he got lost driving home from Cudahy and that he waited hours before seeking help from people living nearby. The area where the SUV got stuck had been a train crossing at one time, but it has since been abandoned and the intersection has signs telling motorists that the road is a dead-end.
The estimated damage to the train is not available. However, the crash is still under investigation.
