---- — Warning lights and barrier gates at a Jamestown railroad crossing where a pickup was hit by a train Wednesday are due to be installed this summer.

Matthew Graham, 24, Jamestown, was west bound on CR 800 S approaching U.S. 136 at the eastern edge of Jamestown when he drove into the path of a 79-car CSX Transportation freight about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday. Boone County Sheriff Deputy John Ford said Graham ignored a stop sign and railroad warning signs at the crossing. Graham was taken to Eskenazi Health Hospital in Indianapolis to be treated for non-life threatening injuries.
