The Uinta County Sheriff’s Office is currently seeking information on who may have left a pickup truck on some railroad tracks near Evanston that forced a stop to rail traffic in the area.
The maroon Ford F-150 truck was found abandoned and stuck on the railroad tracks Sunday afternoon in the area of the Aspen Tunnels.
Train traffic in the area was shut down for six hours while the vehicle was removed from the tracks and inspected for damage.
Deputies believe Robert Finney of Evanston was the driver of the vehicle. Finney is also wanted on a warrant for felony probation revocation.
Anyone with information about the incident or Finney’s whereabouts should call the sheriff’s office at 307-783-1000.
