Dangerous crossing?

Miranda Wood and her 13-year-old daughter, Starla, a student at Latta, re-enact their near-miss encounter with a train at a crossing on Simmons Road, CR 3540, west of Ada. A large bluff and trees obscured their view of a train approaching the crossing just as they arrived. Thanks to the alertness of the railroad worker, a blast from the train’s horn warned Wood to halt before an accident could occur. Wood said she wants the county to do something to improve safety at the crossing.
