New rail safeguards in Kelso where 3 died
The Daily News of Longview also reported that the Federal Railroad Administration's investigation into the crash should be ready for public release in the next two months.
Killed in the crash at the Kelso train yard were Coach America shuttle van driver Steven Sebastian of Castle Rock and BNSF employees Tom Kenny of Shoreline and Christopher Loehr of Seattle. A third railroad employee, Dwight Hauck of Auburn, was injured.
State officials say a parked train would have made it difficult for the driver to see the Seattle-bound train that struck the van.
