Car Crashes into Train


LANGDON, Kan. (AP) Authorities have identified the Harvey County woman who died and two others who were injured in a car-train accident near Walton.

The Harvey County Sheriff’s office says Taylor Sowell, 19, of Newton died when the car she was driving collided with a BNSF freight train Saturday about a mile southwest of Walton.

Her 20-year-old husband, Dylan Sowell, and her 17-year-old brother, Kyle Malek of Sedgwick, were taken to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita.

On Monday, the hospital said Dylan Sowell was in fair condition but information was not available on Malek.

The Hutchinson News reports the railroad crossing did not have flashing lights or gates.
