MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Memphis Police said a man is dead after a crash involving a train and pickup truck in Raleigh.

Traffic was shutdown in both directions along Raleigh LaGrange between Covington Pike and Wilfong during the investigation.
ABC24 viewer Dallas Thigpen provided video of the aftermath, telling us, "On my way back to work I heard a loud boom, sounded like a bomb went off. And when I left my apartment I could see black smoke just filling the sky. This is a tragedy and my heart goes out to the man and his family."
