Hello everyone I was not there personally but my wife to be was and she said that the people driving the car who was in there teens upper had went around the gates and tried to run the train but unfortunatly didnt make it. Its to bad to see stuff like this happening and hopefully people will be smarter and not try to do stupid stuff like going around the gates

"ambulance", not "ambulence"

Thanks for letting us know, though.

i was driving right there earlier and the light was out right past the tracks going west i doubt those people just tried to beat the train something could have been wrong with the crossing gates

first of all there have been several lives affected by this terrible tragic situation, but i will say this after hearing and reading things that the driver has been in trouble with the law for, he should have never had a license and i'm sorry if i hurt anyones feelings for saying this, but now for the real kicker because of his absolute dumb and iggnorante choices my granddaughter will never know her dad mr. callison who was the passenger who perished in this accident. i am tired of all the negative this has had but someone needs to be held responsible for making sure this baby is taken care. You know what i am talking about ,no amount of money will ever replace him but some kind of compinsation needs to occur by the drivers family.

i will start of by saying yes a very horrible thing to have happened. I do know the passenger mr. callison who perished,some who read this may know and those who dont i hope you can understand my point of view.He has a baby girl who will never know her daddy because of the iggnorant and careless choice that the driver made. I know that there has been so many negative comments made on so many sights and i am finally going to say what has been on my mind since i have learned of all the trouble the drive has been in with the law, as far as i am concerned he should have lost his drivers license a long time ago due to the fact of the carelessness he has shown in the past. I know what kind of a man mr. callison was and he was a hard worker a student at sshs and was planning on entering the military after graduation. I am going to say this that even though the driver was of legal age and an adult someone should be responsible for making sure mr. callisons baby daughter is taken care of now he has perished ya thats right he could have helped finish taking care of her if his life would not have ended thursday night. seriously people how would you feel if you were you.
