Police are reminding residents to exercise caution when crossing railroad tracks in the area, especially during the night time.
"It's very difficult for them, they can not stop that train on a dime," said Ransom Jr. "If they do see somebody on or near the tracks it's going to take them a while to get the train at a complete stop."
