The kindergarten student was in the backseat of a Jeep Grand Cherokee, driven by 25-year-old Seath Stevenson when it collided with an Indiana Railroad Company locomotives at a railroad crossing.

Officials say that the crossing was marked by railroad crossing signs and two stop signs, but was not equipped with any kind of electronic flashing lights, bells or crossing arms.
