Rural Nebraska BNSF Railroad Corridor Site of Second Accident in Two Months

(Homer, Nebraska – July 21, 2014)

According to Federal Railroad Administration figures, daily averages of 11 BNSF Railway freight trains pass through the railroad’s corridor through Dakota County, NE at a top permissible speed of 49 mph.  Yet, there are numerous county crossings that do not have any active warning devices, such as lights and gates that can prevent up to 96% of accidents.
