Amtrak Train Hits Car at County Roads 32A and 105 Killing the Driver
DAVIS, CA (September 16, 2019) – A man died after an Amtrak train struck his car Monday afternoon in the city of Davis.
The crash happened around 12:25 p.m. at County Roads 32A and County Road 105.
According to the CHP, a silver Toyota was crossing the tracks when it was hit by the train headed to San Jose. The train traveled roughly another quarter mile before it came to a stop.
As a result of the crash, the driver of the Toyota died at the scene. The Yolo County Coroner’s Office identified him as Richard Campbell, 82, of Davis.
There were no injuries aboard the train, which carried 77 passengers and five crew members, the CHP said.
Traffic in the area was delayed as County Road 32A was closed in both directions a quarter-mile from County Road 105.
Investigators with Amtrak Police and the California Highway Patrol will help the sheriff’s office determine what led to the crash.
Our deepest condolences and sympathies are with the family and friends of Richard Campbell.
