Orange Park, FL: Car turns onto railway, struck by train

13 Oct

A 73-year-old motorist escaped injury after he turned his car onto the railway at a level crossing in Orange Park, Clay County at which point it was hit by a train. The collision knocked the car clear of the railway. It appears that the out-of-state driver was unfamiliar with the highway layout in the vicinity of the level crossing. The accident occurred at about 10.40pm on October 12th, 2015.

    Alternatively, the designer(s) of the layout in the vicinity of the crossing was, or were, unfamiliar with the needs of a 73 year driver (or maybe even a 23 year old driver).
