Safety push at Ind. crossing with 2 recent deaths

 PRINCETON, Ind. (AP):  A southwestern Indiana commissioner is pushing for crossing gates and signals at a rural rail crossing where a 4-year-old girl died this week in a car-train collision.

Andrea Bullock died Tuesday when a CSX train struck her father's minivan. The collision also injured her father and her older sister.

The girl's death is the second car-train death in two years at the two-track Gibson County crossing. A 75-year-old woman died in October 2011 at the crossing when a train hit her car.

County Commissioners President Gerald Bledsoe says the crossing has bothered him for two decades. He's pushing to revive an effort to add gates and signals to the Princeton-area crossing.

Indiana finances such upgrades through a fund state lawmakers created in 1997.
