A train hit a van in Norwalk over the weekend.

Norwalk fire officials say a van was driving eastbound on Glover Avenue Saturday night when it slid into a snowbank near the railroad tracks on the Metro-North Danbury line.

The driver, 38-year-old Jeffrey Rodrigo Acuna Mata, got out of the van and tried to shovel his way out when the warning lights and gates were activated.
