FORT BRANCH, Ind. (AP) — A coroner says a southwestern Indiana motorist killed at a Gibson County railroad crossing might not have realized a train was approaching.
Gibson County Coroner Barrett Doyle said 75-year-old Evelyn Bullock of Fort Branch died at the scene of the collision with a CSX freight train Saturday morning.
Doyle told the Princeton Daily Clarion for a report Sunday (http://bit.ly/trBEdv ) that Bullock probably did not realize a train was approaching because another train was stopped on another set of tracks at the crossing.
The crossing has only a stop sign and no lights, bells or crossing arms.
The crossing is near the victim's home in Fort Branch, about 20 miles north of Evansville.
