LIVERMORE FALLS — A vehicle hauling an excavator Monday morning on Foundry Road ripped up a section of railroad track on the Park Street end, Police Chief Ernest Steward Jr. said.

Public Works Director Bill Nichols notified Steward of the incident, which occurred about 10:19 a.m. The track was torn up bad enough that Steward called a representative of Pan Am railroad company to stop the train from coming through until the track was repaired.

Dennis Simard, 61, of Chelsea was driving the rig and trailer owned by C.H.Stevenson Inc. of Wayne. The trailer was not raised high enough to go over the tracks with the excavator on it, Steward said.

Police did a preliminary report for the railroad company.
