PRINCETON, Ind. (AP) — A southwestern Indiana rural railroad crossing is closer to receiving crossing arms and signals after the second deadly train-motor vehicle crash there in two years.
A CSX Transportation spokeswoman tells the Princeton Daily Clarion that the railroad and the Indiana Department of Transportation intend to install the warning devices at the Gibson County crossing where a 4-year-old girl died Aug. 6 when a train struck a van driven by her father. A 75-year-old woman also died there when a train hit her car in October 2011.
INDOT spokeswoman Cher Elliott says that the agency recently resubmitted a proposal to CSX to install overhead warning lights and gates and warning bells. She says federal funds are available to pay for the $300,000 upgrade.
