Driver Dies in Car Train Collision

FORT WORTH, Texas Authorities say a deadly crash between a North Texas commuter train and a car happened after the vehicle's driver tried going around warning gates and ended up in the path of the train.

None of the 150 passengers on the Trinity Railway Express train were injured in the Saturday afternoon accident at a Fort Worth railroad crossing.

The driver, the vehicle's only occupant, was trapped in the wreckage and died. His name has not been released by authorities.

The Trinity Railway Express provides passenger service between Fort Worth and Dallas.
