It has been six months since a car-train collision at the Arriba Road railroad crossing north of Las Vegas claimed the life of Las Vegan Michael Esquibel. It was the second fatality at the site in less than a year.
Four months earlier, Fred Stark, a Denver man in town for his daughter’s wedding, was also hit and killed by a train at the same crossing.
In February, New Mexico Public Regulation Commission member Jerome Block said he was “taking the bull by the horns” and was taking initial steps to get safety equipment installed at the site.
