Butler County, KS — Kansas investigators have identified the bodies of two people killed in a car/train railroad crossing accident in Butler County earlier this year.  The crossing where 32 year-old woman and her 15 month-old son were struck by a train was not marked with warning signs, gates or lights.

The BNSF train that hit the car was pulling tank cars filled with ethanol.  After collision at the unmarked railroad crossing, the train dragged the car for a mile before the car was thrust loose into a ditch and caught fire.   The 1999 Ford Taurus was fully engulfed in flames when officers arrived at the scene of the crash.  The bodies were burned beyond recognition. Neither railroad investigators nor Sheriff’s officials have announced the cause of the crash, which happened shortly before 5:00 P.M. on Friday, January 28, 2011.
