According to the Springfield Police Department, at around 2 a.m. Saturday, a Springfield woman was driving down Memorial Drive at the same time that a train was crossing, causing a collision. Although, it was dark at that time, the woman would still have been able to see the train on the tracks. This area of tracks is not blocked off by crossing arms, but does include a visible “Yield” sign. The Springfield Fire Department removed the woman from her Chevy Tahoe, using the “Jaws of Life”. The impact was fatal and she was transported to Bay State Hospital where she was pronounced dead. There were no other occupants or injuries reported. The Hampden County District Attorney’s Office is currently investigating the situation.
