This requires for trains to slow down miles before the crossing, wait for the lights to flash and the barrier to come down, and travel through the intersection at two miles per hour. However, the van collided with the train. One woman was killed and 10 others, including nine children. Seven of the children were taken to Atrium Medical Center in Middletown. The other two were transported to a nearby campus of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. The female driver of the van suffered serious injuries and a female passenger was pronounced dead at a local hospital. An investigation into the accident is ongoing. According to some unverified sources, investigators suspect the driver was distracted and ignored the flashing warning signals.
