Looks like two teenagers in my town lost their lives because they didn't feel like obeying crossing arms last night. I'd be mighty grumpy if I got on in Lincoln and then sat in the station for another 6 hours!
None of the nearly 300 people on the train were injured, the captain said.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation but police said the car drove around a railroad crossing arm.
The Amtrak train -- which left the Lincoln station at 12:05 a.m. -- returned to the station, where it was to undergo an inspection, Dale said. According to Amtrak, the train resumed its trip west at 6:13 a.m.
