         A 71-year-old Nortonville Route 1 man was killed instantly at 7:45 a.m. today when his pickup truck was struck by a train near his home on Salem Road about a mile south of Nortonville.
         State Trooper Tonald Hunt said that George Townes Craig was driving his 1955 pickup east on Salem Road, about 1,500 feet from his home, when an L&N freight train struck the truck at the Romney crossing.
