Fatal Easter railroad crash

A 17-year-old student from Peetz, Colorado lost her life at a railroad crossing on Easter Sunday while trying to cross railroad tracks. Angela Goranson stopped short of the crossing to wait for an incoming eastbound UP train to pass. Seeing that the train had past and knowing of no signs of danger, she began crossing, only to be hit by an oncoming westbound UP train. Had there been active, functioning warning signs, this tragedy would not have taken place.
