In Wabash County, Austin Sams, 18-years-old, was killed when a vehicle he was driving was hit by a train. The accident occurred after 3:00 pm as he turned north on CR 700 and then tried to cross railroad tracks. He was hit on the passenger side door by the train. His car caught on fire. Rescuers found his body in the car after the fire was extinguished. The train took a mile and a half to stop after the accident. This is not unusual. Trains require at least a mile to stop. The investigation is ongoing.  

One blogger said there is poor visibility at this site. Wabash County should evaluate this location for safety hazards.
