Chico, CA – Driver Loses Life in Chico Train Crash on Sacramento Avenue

chico train crashChico, CA (August 20, 2018) – Early Saturday morning, a driver lost their life when they were involved in a Chico train crash around 2:26 a.m. It happened at West Sacramento Avenue.

When firefighters and police officers arrived at the scene, they found that there was one badly damaged vehicle on the east side of the tracks. They went to aid the motorist and found that he was unresponsive.

The firefighters were able to extricate the driver in a laborious rescue and were able to attempt CPR. The driver was then transported to Enloe Medical Center but, while there, he was pronounced dead. His name has not yet been released pending family notification.

There were passengers on the Amtrak train at the time but police have reported that, fortunately, none have been injured.

Police have also confirmed that, when the driver became stuck on the tracks, the crossing guards were down and warning bells were sounding. The driver might have made an attempt to drive around the crossing guards but they are still investigating at this time.
