TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV)– Once every three hours, a vehicle or pedestrian is involved in an accident with a train in the United States. It's an alarming statistic that hits home in Indiana. Last year, the state ranked 5th across the country in railroad collisions and deaths.  This week, officials across the country are hoping to educate residents during Rail Safety Week. Operation Lifesaver is a nonprofit organization that helped establish the campaign.  Indiana Operation Lifesaver executive director Jessica Feder said they are making a big push to help make the state safer.
