PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A man was able to leap from his pickup truck before a collision with a train in Sun City on Monday morning, but he couldn't avoid his own record and was jailed.

A Maricopa County Sheriff's Office spokesperson said it was unclear whether the truck hit the train while it was stopped or whether the train hit him.

The spokesman said the man suffered minor injuries but was not taken to a hospital.

Instead, he was taken to the Fourth Avenue Jail on outstanding warrants.

The collision happened just before 5 a.m. near 99th and Grand avenues.

No other information was immediately available.
