Train kills one in Texas

By February 7, 2008 No Comments

A 26 year old woman and her 27 year old boyfriend got their car stuck on the railroad tracks on a foggy night in Buda, Texas. She was killed, and her boyfriend was critically injured in the train accident. Although officials are still unsure about the specifics, we know the railroad crossing had only a stop sign to warn motorists of oncoming trains. A worn stop sign on a foggy night is hardly enough to protect drivers from the certain death that will occur in a car vs. train accident. Bright, flashing lights and bells could have prevented this accident, but unfortunately one more person has lost her life due to a negligent railroad company.
