Train crossing safety stressed

The La. 13 railroad crossing was a busy place Thursday with police, deputies and reporters and photographers on the scene.
That would normally be case if a train and vehicle had collided at the intersection, but on Thursday it was just the opposite reason — there was no wreckage and the point was to keep it that way.
The event was for Crossing Accident Reduction Education and Operation Life Saver Officer on the Train.
