A non-passenger train struck a car, and its occupant was killed at the 4th Ave. crossing in Brentwood yesterday around 8:00pm. This photo was posted by a firefighter at the scene. Prayers to the family and victim. A witness reported the car going around the gates, when the car was struck.

Some more pictures of the aftermath of the collision. Seems as the train was traveling at MAS when it struck the car.
