  1. Milam County is fairly close to Austin, just to the northwest. Interesting. My question is why would an 18-wheeler cross rail road tracks when a train is coming? Why didn’t the blockers (or whatever the mechanism that comes down to block traffic across tracks is called) come down to block the 18-wheeler? Definitely suspicious…. or did the power outages across the state prevent the blockers from coming down… or was it on purpose they didn’t. I wonder how the “world-renowned” Texas Rail Road Commission will explain this one.

    1. Truck driver died of the convids right before he hit the train. That’s what I’m guessing they will say what happened.
