Mother and two kids are killed when Amtrak train hits their SUV at Florida railroad crossing where 'yield sign and track markers were hidden by brush'. None of the 200 train passengers were injured. Cause of crash was not immediately available however it's reported there was no gate by the tracks

Former actor Olive McFarland, 82, was struck by train moving at 100mph on track that should have been restricted to 55mph.

No one on the train was injured.

The boys’ grandfather David Peat told the newspaper he was shocked to find no structure preventing a car from unwittingly driving into the path of an oncoming train. Instead, there is a pole with a railroad crossing and yield sign.

“There’s no drop-down gates, no lights, no signal,” he said.

Peat, who was the boys’ caretaker, took his concerns to longtime acquaintance state Rep. Matt Willhite, a Democrat from Wellington, where the family lives.

“We just lost three members of our community, and young kids,” Willhite told the Post. “I’m going to look into why we don’t have more than just a yield sign at a rail crossing where a train is going (at high speeds).”

The tracks are owned by CSX Transportation.

Peat said the boys enjoyed the outdoors and loved to ride dirt bikes and fish. They attended New Horizon Elementary School, which is out for the Thanksgiving holiday. The school alerted parents on Sunday that the boys had died and said grief counselors would be available when school resumes Dec. 2.

Terrence Hamilton, head of the Boy Scouts of America’s Gulf Stream Council, which oversees Scouting activities in a seven-county area including Palm Beach, called it “an extremely difficult time for our Scouting family.”
