Earlier this week, shortly before 2:15 pm, a white 2007 Dodge utility truck driven by Kenneth A. Downey, 52, from Corydon, IN, was travelling south on Crosby Road just south of State Road 64 in Ramsey, (Harrison County).
When the driver approached the rail road tracks that cross Crosby Road going east and west he failed to yield to an oncoming west bound Norfolk Southern Locomotive, pulling several train cars. The train and truck collided and the driver of the truck was pronounced dead at the scene by the Harrison County Coroner’s Office. His death was due to the injuries he received from the impact of the locomotive. No one on the locomotive was injured.
The truck Kenneth A Downey was driving belonged to the Ramsey Water Company, where he was an employee.
