15 Killed At Indiana Railroad Crossings Last Year

Last updated on Friday, June 13, 2014

(UNDATED) - Nearly 50 people were injured or killed at railroad crossings in Indiana last year and now Amtrak is jumping on board with a campaign to help save lives.

Barbara Petito says there's no question that people will be injured if they're hit by a train.

Fifteen people in Indiana were killed at railroad crossings last year, another 34 were injured.

Operation Lifesaver has a "See Tracks, Think Train" campaign that reminds people to think twice when they approach a railroad crossing.

Whether you're walking or driving, you should always remember to yield at tracks, especially if there's no crossing arm.

And most importantly, never try to walk or drive around the crossing arm when it's down.
