WEST CHESTER, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a man has died after his SUV collided with a train in southwestern Ohio.
West Chester Township police say the 70-year-old Liberty Township man died from injuries he suffered Tuesday afternoon at a railroad crossing on state Route 747 in Butler County.
Police say he was ejected when the CSX train hit his SUV.
It's not clear why the collision occurred. Police say rail crossing gates were functioning properly at the time, and drugs and alcohol weren't factors in the crash.
