Careful at the railroad crossing at Cisco / Westwater

Somebody finally got clipped at this crossing- everyone keep their eyes open.....

Update: Amtrak train hits semi, kills driver

The driver of a semi-trailer truck died today when the truck collided with an eastbound Amtrak train near the Utah-Colorado border northeast of Moab.
Utah Highway Patrol spokesman Doug McCleve did not have any information about the driver.
Amtrak spokeswoman Vernae Graham said 119 people were onboard the California Zephyr, which left Emeryville, Calif., Tuesday bound for Chicago.
The train hit the semi in the intersection of a county road near Cisco, about 35 miles northeast of Moab, around 11:30 a.m., said Graham.
Two passengers reported injuries, both minor. The crew was not injured, Graham said.
The impact caused a minor derailment of the train and of the lead engine will have to be re-railed. The lead engine, which sustained damage from the impact, will be removed from the train, after which the train will continue on its route.
Passengers will wait on the train until the derailment can be fixed, Graham said.
There are no gates or flashing lights at the intersection of the track and the road. It is still unknown how the collision occurred. The accident was being investigated by the Grand County Sheriff's Office and the Utah Highway Patrol.
