Burlington Northern is mourning a death in the family; two deaths actually. Engineer Tom Kenny, 58, Conductor Trainee Christopher Loehr, 28, died when the van they were in was hit by a grain train outside Kelso. Gus Melonas with Burlington says They can’t begin to describe how difficult it is for everyone; they are like family. The third fatality was a driver; Steven Sebastian, 60. He worked for the company that transports Burlington employees. A 4th man is in critical condition at OHSU. The accident apparently happened when the van driver failed to see the oncoming train as he was crossing tracks outside the south Kelso yard ; why he might not have seen it is yet to be determined.
