A Waynoka man died after his vehicle collided with a passing train Monday.
Michael Linn Weber, 47, was killed about 5:05 p.m. Monday as he was driving south on County Road 480, a half mile east of County Road 470 in Woods County. He passed over railroad tracks at an unguarded crossing and was hit by an oncoming train.
Weber was ejected from his vehicle and died at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt, according to a report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
The front car of the train was derailed by the collision, but neither the engineer nor the conductor on the locomotive was injured and none of the materials on the train were spilled.
Joe Faust, a spokesman for the BNSF Railway, said the crossing didn't have any gates, but did have a sign indicating railroad tracks.
A camera was also on the front of the train, Faust said. The railroad will conduct an investigation to see if anything could have been done to prevent the accident.
