Iowa train-car collision kills New London woman

On September 21rst 2009 a New London woman died after she drove her pickup truck around the crossing arms at the railroad tracks and was hit by an Amtrak train. The accident happened in eastern Iowa. The collision occurred at about 5:45 p.m near Danville. The driver of the truck died at the scene. There were 250 passengers on board and no injuries have been reported as of yet. One has to wonder what would possess someone to drive around the crossing arms. Was she in that big of a hurry, were the arms not functioning correctly? Is the train engineer supposed to sound his horn before entering the intersection? Did he? Was corn blocking the view? Was the driver upset, distracted, under the influence or just didn't care to think? What does the train sound like as it comes down those tracks? Listen to this blues harmonica player recreate the sound of the train's horn as it comes down the tracks.
