Lincoln Police Investigate Car-Train Collision
The Lincoln Police Department is investigating a car-train collision that occurred just before 6am on November 19, 2009. The railroad lights were activated and crossing arms down at SW 6th and West A Street as a northbound Amtrak train approached. Witnesses reported that a black Acura slowly drove toward the tracks. The driver then chose to maneuver his vehicle around the crossing arms. The vehicle was immediately struck by the on-coming train. The driver, a 42 year old Lincoln man, Huy Nguyen, was ejected from the vehicle and found deceased. Emergency responders searched the area. It is believed that Huy was the only occupant of the vehicle. No injuries were reported among passengers aboard the train.
