In short: a motorist dies when he crashes into a truck stopped at an RR crossing


A 29-year-old man from Indiana was killed when his car crashed into the back of a tractor that stopped at a railroad crossing in West Indiana.

Indiana State Police are investigating the crash Tuesday afternoon on U.S. 41 north of State Road 48.

A military statement said the 2015 Mack tractor, driven by 64-year-old Thomas E. Selig, of Rockville, Indiana, was driving north on U.S. 41 with four-way turn signals on. According to the military, emergency lighting was turned on because Selig was transporting hazardous materials.

Selig told the military that he was stopped at a railroad crossing that he was required to do by law because of the transport of hazardous materials when he felt a blow to the back of his trailer. 2014 Chevrolet car Dillion K Killion from Terre Haute was driving north and did not notice that the truck stopped, hitting the back.

According to the military, Killion died at the scene. Selig was not injured.
