The driver of a pickup truck injured in a collision with a Via Rail passenger train southwest of London, Ont., a week ago has died.

Provincial police say 22-year-old John Jobson of Southwest Middlesex municipality died of his injuries at a London hospital early Thursday evening.

Mr. Jobson was injured in a crash at a rail crossing last Friday morning near Glencoe, about 60 kilometres southwest of London.

A locomotive and four cars were derailed in the collision but remained upright.

Six passengers on the Windsor-bound Via train were treated for non-life threatening injuries.
