GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. -- Grayson County officials are trying to prevent anymore train-related fatal car accidents.
Six train signals are being installed across Precinct Three two years after an 80-year old man was killed at the intersection of Lynch Crossing Road.
Four people have died at that intersection in the last 20 years.
Each of the signals costs $250,000. Officials say it’s about time something is done.
"You've got a 70 mile-per-hour track here, and a train is coming out of those trees at seventy miles an hour, and it’s on you before you can see him, so now at least you have a warning when that arm goes down," said Grayson County Precinct 3 Commissioner Jackie Crisp.
No word yet on when the train signal will be operational.
