The Crossing memorial

TRAGEDY AND HOPE AT THE CROSSING

In this investigation, we first stopped at the Greeley, Colorado State Armory.  Where the bodies of 20 children were taken after a horrible school bus accident on a railroad crossing in 1961. The Armory acted as a temporary morgue. We catch several hits on the KII meter. These hits were like kids were playing with it. Then we were off to the crash site itself.

Due to this incident, Federal law requires commercial vehicles that carry either passengers or hazardous materials to stop at railroad crossings to ensure that there are no approaching trains, even if crossing gates and signals are in place. School bus drivers are required to open the front door at crossings to ensure that they can see and hear approaching trains.

Thank you to the Kindred Spirits Society International for organizing this event. And thank you to Brooks for creating a marvelous history project to help us understand the event better. GOOD JOB Brooks.
