Train and van accident in Gulfport
A mini-van collided with a train in downtown Gulfport this evening.
It happened on Beach Boulevard by 25th Avenue. The driver of the mini-van said he saw the lights of the railroad crossing and heard the horn, but did not see the train.
When he crossed the first set of tracks, he still did not see the train until the very last minute while attempting to cross the second set of train tracks then the train hit the front end of the van.
The driver did not suffer any major injuries.
