Man loses truck searching for fishing spot

Nathan Miller has learned the hard way that "Road Closed" signs are posted for a reason.

The 25-year-old Pennsylvania man ventured onto a closed road Sunday afternoon in search of good fishing at Bald Eagle State Park, but his pickup truck got stuck on some railroad tracks.

After trying for 45 minutes to dislodge the truck, Miller said he could do nothing but step back and watch a train smash into it.

Signs clearly stated the road was closed, but Miller said he decided to "give it a shot" after hearing about the fishing spot.

He has no intentions of going back.

No one was hurt, but police cited Miller for trespassing.

Miller says he was "Pretty much a local idiot just trying to go fishing."
