Вчера в Орегоне поезд столкнулся с автомобилем. Погибли три человека, которые находились в автомобиле.

LONGVIEW, Wash. — A freight train struck a shuttle van in Longview Wednesday, killing three people and critically injuring a fourth.

The shuttle van was transporting three Burlington Northern Sante Fe crew members across the tracks when it was struck on the passenger side by a northbound grain train, according to Gus Melonas with BNSF.

The private rail crossing had warning signs and a stop sign, but no safety crossing arms. Investigators said a parked train may have obstructed the van driver’s view of the oncoming train. Witnesses said they heard a train bell sound just before the horrific crash.
