Getting stopped at a railroad crossing while a train passes can be annoying, but the flashing lights and guards are there to protect us. Unfortunately, those safety features may not have been working.
One man was killed in a Tulsa train accident when his vehicle struck a moving train, according to News On 6.
According to authorities, police officers were warned of a broken signal arm at the crossing where the crash happened ten minutes before the Tulsa train accident occurred.
When authorities arrived at the scene, they found the driver of the vehicle ejected and far from the site of the Tulsa train accident. His vehicle was lodged under the train with debris scattered at the scene.
The Tulsa train accident is still under investigation.
