SCHUYLER, Neb. (AP) —
Authorities say an Omaha man has died after a train hit his sport
utility vehicle near the eastern Nebraska city of Schuyler.
A westbound Union Pacific train pulling loaded grain cars hit the SUV Saturday morning at a crossing just west of Schuyler.
Colfax County Attorney's Office identified the motorist as 47-year-old
John Eastwood. He was pronounced dead at a Schuyler hospital about an
hour after the crash.
Initial reports were that the crossing gates, lights and bells were functioning properly.
